You will need
- a syringe with a volume of 1 ml;
- - a cotton ball or disc;
- - alcohol.
Wash your hands and wipe them with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol.
Select the site for injection. For subcutaneous injections are preferred buttocks, thighs, upper arms and stomach area. Take a shot at a distance of not less than three inches from the previous injection. Failure to do so may lead to scar or thickening of the skin.
Lubricate the injection site with a cotton pad abundantly dampened with alcohol. First, treat large area of skin around the site of injection, then the place of injection.
Make the left hand a fold of skin in the shape of a triangle. In the right hand take the syringe. If you are left handed, do the opposite. The syringe should be in dominant hand, so that it's accurate.
Insert the needle at 2/3 of the length at an angle of 45 degrees to the base of the skin fold.
Put the medicine slowly by pushing the plunger of the syringe with your thumb.
Remove the needle from the skin and press the injection site with a cotton disk soaked in alcohol. Removing wool from the skin, with circular movements massage gently places the shot.
Discard the syringe in the trash, after putting on the needle cap.
Watch carefully so that when you dial the medication into the syringe did not get an air bubble. If it still happens, do not inject it under the skin. Leave the air bubble with a small amount of medication in the syringe.
