Z track injections will solve that most of the time.[/quote]
How do you do that on your own in the glutes? It’s a bitch just to aspirate. Could you shed some light on this?[/quote]
I shoot ventro glute. Yes twisting sucks in general but its pretty easy to shoot ventro. Right glute, right hand shooter, left hand across the hip for z track. Aspirating can be done one handed. You don’t need to have the plunger move very much to know if you’re pulling blood…besides aspirating at least imo is not critical…mever seen a nurse or any other health practitioner aspirate ever. I still do it out of habit though.[/quote]
It does seem easier there but like everything else, the first one scares the hell out of you. I like to switch it up with quad shots on leg days.
Ya, I know what you are saying about nurses but then they have been doing it every day 10x a day for 20 years. I’ve injected IM hundreds of times and never got any blood but the time I don’t aspirate, that’ll be the time I’m in a vain.
