    Intramuscular Injection. Intramuscular injections are one of the most common routes of administering drugs to nonhuman primates. The use of a squeeze cage makes this technique the method of choice for delivering drugs that are available in intramuscular injection form. Small nonhuman primates may be restrained by physical means. Immunizations are administered through the following routes: intramuscular (IM), subcutaneous (SQ), oral, nasal, and intradermal. The majority of immunizations are administered IM, but MMR, varicella, zoster, and MPSV are administered SQ. In administering IM injections, it is important to use a needle with the correct length to reach the muscle.

    Intradermal and Subcutaneous Injections Intradermal injections (ID) are injections administered into the dermis, just below the epidermis. The ID injection route has the longest absorption time of all parenteral routes. These types of injections are used for sensitivity tests, such as TB (see Figure ), allergy, and local anesthesia : Jodie Anita, Glynda Rees Doyle, Jodie Anita McCutcheon. Administering intramuscular injections is a skill which is frequently performed by nurses and nursing students. However, the literature about the proper technique for administering an intramuscular injection presents conflicting information. Further, selected nursing textbooks are not in agreement about this procedure.

    • In infants and toddlers, it is recommended that intramuscular injections be given in the middle one-third of the lateral aspect of the vastus lateralis muscle (anterolateral upper thigh). • In older children, intramuscular injections are given in the deltoid muscle. • The ventrogluteal site can be used in children over age 2. injected into the following areas: intramuscular, subcutaneous and intradermal. Disposal. Describe the four safety performance criteria. for sharps disposal containers. Introduction. The process for giving an injection includes some basic steps. This manual divides the injection process into four categories. Upon completion of this.

Intramuscular injections must be done carefully to avoid complications. Intramuscular injections book with IM include muscle atrophy, injury to bone, cellulitis, sterile abscesses, pain, and nerve injury (Hunter, ; Ogston-Tuck, a).

With IMs, there is an increased risk of injecting the medication directly into the patient’s bloodstream.

Intramuscular (IM) Self-Injection. What is an Intramuscular Injection. An intramuscular injection, as illustrated in the figure below, delivers medication deep into the muscle tissue. This allows the medication to be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream for action.

An intramuscular injection is a technique used to deliver a medication deep into the muscles. This allows the medication to be absorbed into the bloodstream quickly. You may have received an intramuscular injection at a doctor’s office the last time you got a vaccine, like the flu : Jacquelyn Cafasso.

Intramuscular Injections Intramuscular (IM) injections deposit medications into the muscle fascia, which has a rich blood supply, allowing medications to be absorbed faster through muscle fibres than they are through the subcutaneous route (Malkin, ; Ogston-Tuck, a; Perry et al., ).Author: Jodie Anita, Glynda Rees Doyle, Jodie Anita McCutcheon.

Steps on How to Give an IM Injection. Gather supplies: alcohol pads, syringe, needle (needle length varies on the muscle used), gauze, and adhesive tape. Perform hand hygiene and don gloves. Select the best site to administer the intramuscular injection. Because of the adverse and documented effects of pain associated with IM injections, nurses are encouraged to consider other routes first and use the IM route of administration as a last alternative (Perry et al., ).

Sites for intramuscular injections include the ventrogluteal, vastus lateralis, and the deltoid : Renée Anderson. The best locations for an IM injection are your upper arms, thighs, hips, and buttocks.

These sites have large, easy to locate muscles and a little fatty tissue covering them. Upper Arm (Deltoid Muscle) Your deltoid muscle is located in your upper arm, just below your shoulder.

To mark this site, place the palm of your hand on your shoulder and. IM injections are administered in five potential sites: deltoid (commonly used for adult vac-cinations), dorsogluteal, ventrogluteal, rectus Large-volume IM injections: A review of best practices intramuscular injections offer improved treatment adherence, ease in monitoring of adverse effects, and multiple administration sites feature |File Size: KB.

The intramuscular route allows the rapid absorption of drugs into the circulation. Using the correct injection technique and selecting the correct site will minimise the risk of complications.

Injected medicines are commonly used in healthcare settings for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various illnesses. Unsafe injection practices put patients and healthcare providers at risk of infectious and non-infectious adverse events and have been associated with a wide variety of procedures and settings.

Where can I give an intramuscular injection? Thigh: Look at your thigh and divide it into 3 equal parts. The middle third is where the injection will go. The thigh is a good place to give yourself an injection because it is easy to see.

It is also a good spot for children younger than 3 years old. The place to give the injection is in the middle of the V. The hip is a good place for an injection for adults and children older than seven months.

Deltoid Muscle (Upper arm muscle): Completely expose the upper arm. Feel for the bone that goes across the top of the upper arm. This bone is called the acromion process%(18).WHO best practices for injections and related procedures toolkit.
