A syringe is a small, simple piston pump based medical instrument used to administer injections of intravenous drugs into the bloodstream, or to draw a blood sample from a patient. In the medical field, disposable syringes are typically used in conjunction with hypodermic needles to inject or remove liquids from the body.
To reduce the risk of spreading blood-bourne diseases, a hypodermic needle should never be used by more than one person. The syringe itself is commonly reused by diabetics and is acceptable as long as it is cleaned and never shared.
Medical syringes can also be used to administer liquid medicine without the use of a needle. This is much easier and more efficient when working with kids because it can be used as a measuring spoon. You simply administer the liquid orally.
