The dose was delivered when: in the pre-filled pen - the grey plunger is visible at the top of the clear base; in the pre-filled syringe - the green plunger rod is visible through the syringe body.
The pre-filled pen has visual and audible signals to confirm the injection was successfully completed. 1
To perform the injection the user should press the green injection button.
There will be a loud click that signifies the release of a spring inside the pen. The user should keep holding the clear base firmly against the skin.
A second loud click is heard in about 5 to 10 seconds after the first one. It indicates that the injection is complete.
During the delivery, the user might not hear clicks or can hear a soft click before the second loud click. The user should always check the position of the grey plunger at the top of the clear base after the injection. The grey plunger is the most important indicator of a successful dose delivery.1
