Understanding the Basics of Needle Gauge

The needle gauge system, often referred to as ‘G’ is an internationally-referred scale for sizing needles. The system was adopted from already existing gauges, which were used to size metal wires. The gauge size of a needle indicates the diameter of the lumen. If the gauge is higher, the diameter will be smaller. A high gauge needle will cause less pain than a needle with a lesser gauge. Let’s look at the gauge sizes of some of the most popular needles used worldwide.
