Medical - Medical (general)
Spanish term or phrase: palomita
This comes from a customer's response to a product for hemophiliacs. Other comments have been that the product is more convenient, easier to use, less manipulation, stops bleeding faster, etc. The entire comment is:

"Ahora es práctico, te viene mezclado, solo tienes que poner la palomita y pincharte."

I have no idea what "palomita" would be in this phrase. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

the correct word is "palomita" not "palometa". I am a Nurse, and I am used to work with this kind of devices.
