Just got a few questions about intramuscular injection. Been doing a fair bit of research on this since everything else seems to be pretty straight forward to me. Can someone enlighten me on a few tips/proper way to inject?
The main problem is everything I've read, says to 'stretch the skin tight'. Then inject. I've looked up various youtube videos, some seem to just grab a whole bunch of skin, like lift it up and inject into it. Some people seem to just throw the needle into their leg. I've seen people just leave the needle wobbling in their leg.
Is what I've read correct, and are the guys on youtube just idiots?
Or can you leave the needle dangling in your leg?
Do you lift up the skin instead of stretching it tight?
Does it matter if I push the needle in fast or slow?
I'm still researching everything, I don't have any gear so I'm not planning to inject tomorrow or anything like that. Just can't seem to find straight answers on some of these.
