I assume you are talking about a cannula inserted into a vein? My experience indicates that cannula has to flushed before infusion using 5 ml 0.9% sodium chloride (NaCl) solution (to ensure no blockage) for the following injection and another 5 ml of the 0.9% NaCl solution to flush the line after use.
Don't reuse the syringes as you would, for example, need quite few for even twice a day for a week.
