first medical injection


An innovation that saved millions of lives

The world’s first medical injection was invented in 1853

By veterinarian Charles Gabriel Pravaz, and Alexander Wood independently of each other.

The first medical syringes were made of a rubber or metal cylinder, with a press made of leather inside.

The needle was hollow to the other end of the cylinder.

Since the cylinder was dark and the volume of liquid inside was not seen, the numbers were printed on the piston shaft.
