1. A blood sampling device held by fingers and thumb for inserting a needle cannula into a body and drawing out blood or fluid from said body comprising:

  • an elongated hollow barrel having a first end and a second end and having an inner surface and an outer surface and further having a longitudinal axis in the center of the said elongated hollow barrel, parallel in most part of the said inner surface and said outer surface of the said elongated hollow barrel further extending from said first end to said second end of said elongated hollow barrel;

    a barrel flange fixed to said first end of said elongated hollow barrel;

    a slidable piston inside of said elongated hollow barrel, said slidable piston having a first end and a second end and said first end of said slidable piston is nearer said first end of said elongated hollow barrel;

    a needle cannula having a first end a second end, said first end of said needle cannula extends past said first end of said elongated hollow barrel and said second end of said needle cannula is fixed to said first end of said slidable piston;

    a spring means having a first end and a second end, said first end of said spring means is integral with said barrel flange of said elongated hollow barrel and said second end of spring means is integral with said slidable piston, said spring means is further compressed between said barrel flange of said elongated hollow barrel and said slidable piston;

    at least one piston notch formed into said slidable piston said piston notch is near perpendicular to said longitudinal axis of said elongated hollow barrel;

    a tunnel, said tunnel is formed inside of the slidable piston, said tunnel is fixed to the needle cannula to allow fluid or blood to flow through the needle cannula and into and through said tunnel formed in said slidable piston;

    a needle cannula tunnel in said barrel flange;

    at least one latch means for engaging with said slidable piston and said latch means further having a latch lever wherein said latch is disengaged from said slidable piston wherein said slidable piston is no longer restrained and said spring pushes said slidable piston and said needle cannula in the direction of the second end of said elongated hollow barrel until the said needle cannula is past the said barrel flange of the elongated hollow barrel, thus enclosing said needle cannula in said elongated hollow barrel and said barrel flange.
