How to perform different injections

Different Injection Methods Ireland

Different injection methods are suitable depending on what medication or peptides are being administered [1]. Lets take a look at the common types of different injection methods and how they work:

Subcutaneous injections are administered in the fat layer, underneath the skin.

Subcutaneous injection is administered on to fatty tissues under the skin. the fatty layer is situated immediately beneath the skin and contains few blood vessels. the subcutaneous shot is shallower compared to injections on muscle tissues. Subcutaneous injection is suitable for administering medications that are slowly absorbed in the bloodstream. Examples of such medication is insulin, some fertility drugs, and blood thinners. Subcutaneous injection is safe and requires little force as compared to intramuscular injections. The few blood vessels on this fat layer make it ideal for drugs that need to be absorbed and used slowly in the body. Mostly, the drugs that are to be administered daily are designed suitably for subcutaneous injection since it’s simple.

Intramuscular injections are delivered into the muscle:

Intramuscular injection is an injection method used to deposit drugs deep down the muscle tissue. The method is suitable for administering large quantities of medication that need to be absorbed quickly in the blood. Drugs administered using intramuscular injection are irritating drugs that are painful to administer on subcutaneous tissue. The muscle tissue has less pain sensing nerves making it less painful. Examples of drugs administered using intramuscular injection include antibiotics, vaccinations and hormones.
The method is recommended on patients that are uncooperative or they are not in a position to take oral drugs. Before administering any drug through this method, the nurse assesses the patient to establish if it’s the best method to use on the patient.
Body areas on which IM can be done include shoulder muscle, thigh muscles, muscles on the hip. It is important to avoid injecting at the dorsogluteal hip muscle since one can accidently hit a blood vessel or a borne.

Intradermal Injections are delivered into the dermis:

An intradermal injection is a method of administering drugs using the Monteux technique in the dermis area. Dermis area is located under the upper skin layer. Monteux method is complex making it unpopular. It requires a lot of experience. Despite its unpopularity, intradermal injection has many advantages over other injection methods.
The intradermal injection can alternatively be done using intradermal microinjection. Intradermal microinjection entails the use of smaller needles. The smaller needles can easily reach the dermis layer. Intradermic microinjection can be administered by anyone. The method is is more common when administering anaesthetics. Direct Peptides provides a variety of peptide supplies for all your research needs.

Conclusion

Each of the above discussed different injection methods has both advantages and disadvantages. Each injection method is suitable for administering a particular medication and not another. Several factors determine the choice of the most suitable injection method to use. It’s important to first study the patient and the type of drug needed.
