Zuckerman (36) has suggested the need for individualization of needle length based on patient size and injection technique. In summary, it appears that in larger infants or if skin bunching is used, a longer needle is appropriate. The Red Book suggests needle length of 7/8 to 1 inch for infants, toddlers, and older children and 1–2 inches for adolescents and adults. There seems to be no reason not to support this suggestion. In a related matter, it had previously been suggested that aspiration of the plunger once the needle has been inserted into the muscle was important.
