a couple of questions about injections

I'm only curious and have researched several documents. Still some things not clear.

1) disposable needles is clear, but what about syringes ? Are they re-used how are they kept sterile till used again? Or are they also disposable ?

2) if blood appears when aspirating, do you throw away everything and start again ?

    1. Syringes are disposable

    2. Change the pin - and try again - keep the barrel and contents etc...

    but why would you change the pin but keep the barrel and contents? There's now blood in the barrel. And if it's ok to inject the blood then why change the pin ? Simply cause the pin's so cheap it can be done easily ?

    because the pin blunts after injection, making it more painful to jab with again.

    I draw gear with a green, then change pin to a blue ensure all air bubbles are gone, once needle is in aspirate if there is blood pull out and try again same needle or new one doesnt really matter on the third go i would change.

    I dispose of all needles and barrels i will use a barrel for several injections but only at the time of injection.

    I get them free at the exchange so no need to run the risk of infection with keeping barrels.

    Syringes are cheap why compromise hygiene - replace after use.
