What is an Oral Syringe?
An oral syringe is a device used to inject liquids or other substances into the mouth. It is similar in form and function to a hypodermic needle, but is much smaller. Oral syringes come in different sizes, including 0.25ml, 0.5ml, 1ml, and 2ml sizes. Oral syringes can be purchased online or at most pharmacies. They are typically made of plastic or metal and have a hinged tip that allows the user to easily fill the syringe with liquid and push it into the mouth. Once the desired dose of liquid is in the syringe, the pointer on the hinged tip can be locked into place so that no air can enter the syringe and cause pressure build-up.
How to Clean an Oral Syringe
If you are cleaning your oral syringe after using it, be sure to first rinse it off with cold water. Pour a small amount of detergent into the oral syringe and squirt it into the water. Swish the water around the syringe until the detergent has been dispersed. Hold the syringe close to the water surface and use a plunger to suction onto the top of the liquid and expel it slowly through the hole on top of the syringe. Be sure to clean both sides of the oral syringe before each use!
If you’re having to clean an oral syringe every time you use it, there’s a better way. All you need is some alcohol and a rubber band.
First, tie one end of the rubber band around the top of the syringe. Hold the other end over a sink or container of alcohol and pull the rubber band tight. This will cause the alcohol to flow into the syringe and clean it.
