Is that round piece Ever and I mean EVER Directly connected to the needle part of a syringe that inserts or goes into a persons arm ????

Brief Answer:
Round part directly attach to syringe

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

Syringe has two part. One tube with plunger and second needle. Plunger helps to get blood inside tube. It is directly attached to syringe, but whenever blood get entered into tube, it get stain of it. Chances of getting inside vein while taking blood or transferring blood is very less, almost possible, so there is nothing to worry about it.

In case, you have more query, you can ask.
