How do you know what size syringe to use?

If your tissue measures 30 mm, the needle length for an intramuscular injection should be 2/3 of the tissue, around 20 mm. The optimal needle length to choose would be 25 mm. For the subcutaneous injection, the needle size should be 1/3 of the tissue, about 10 mm.
