lopsidedly /tiltedly squirted tubes

I do not know about squirts being "Ueberspritzungen".

ERNST and Harper Collins Unabridged say: Spritzen

to squirt means: an-ab- be- aus- heraus- hervorspritzen-

squirted means gespritzt

May that help.

tubing inserted at an angle

A guess: If this is like an IV, something else might be connected to it. If the connection is not straight, the flow of whatever is transported via the tubing might be impeded.

For Ausspritzung I'd suggest like complete emptying if that fits into your context.

A Google search on all the terms (angespritzt, ausspritzen, Ausspritzung, etc.) didn't yield any hits. But maybe this makes sense within your context.

As far as Überspritzen = squirt goes, I'm not so sure, either. My gut feeling is that this might be overfilling (again thinking of an IV where often else is added into a small reservoir), but it's impossible to say without having seen the overall context.

Ausspritzung: durch Spritzen reinigen or "to squirt out".

Hope to have been of help.
