IM KB Injections In Adults Use 1cc Needle Syringes
Afternoon, can IM injection in adults use 1cc syringes? If not, where will the injected liquid go?
Family planning injections are done intramuscularly / IM. IM injections of medication fluid are inserted into the muscles, can be in the buttocks, upper arms, or thighs. In general, when inserted into the buttocks of an adult IM requires needles with a length of about 1-1.5 inches.
Actually there is no specific benchmark for the size of the needle used because it also depends on the condition of each patient (eg fat thickness), it's just necessary to ensure that IM injection is done correctly. To inject IM in the buttocks, a needle can be selected which has a length of about 1-1.5 inches with an injection angle of 90 degrees. Family planning injections can be done by obstetricians, doctors or midwives.
Hope it helps you,
