We typically use ¾ inch length needles for patients unless patient size requires it. For most patients the ¾ inch length is appropriate. We place the biopatch on either length dependent on whether the patient is going home with an ambulatory pump.
This is in all of our ambulatory oncology infusion areas at the Cleveland Clinic.
