Flashcard 3 - Order Entry and Processing Flashcard Set for the PTCB Exam


The correct answer is:

plunger, barrel, and needle


There are three distinct parts of a syringe: the plunger, barrel, and needle. The plunger is used to move medication through the barrel and out the tip through the needle. The internal aspect of the plunger is sterile and should not be touched during product manipulation. All needles should be discarded in the sharps container.
