what about massaging the area after injecting? i always see bros talking about doing that for like 10 minutes, but this site tells you not to:
"Donít massage the injection site or allow the patient to wear a tight-fitting garment over the site because it could force the medication into subcutaneous tissue." [and cause an abscess?]
Any nurses/docs here have an opinion on that?

I always massage too. I think that's B.S.

In the first part of the article it states that massaging the area is correct procedure. The part where it says not to massage is in the specialized Z-track method section.
"Using a gloved hand, cover the injection site immediately with the used alcohol sponge, apply gentle pressure, and unless contraindicated, massage the relaxed muscle to help distribute the drug."

Just curious, does anyone know why it says to not recap the needle before you put it in a the sharps container? (bottom of pg. 3)

Giving this a bump since there seems to be a LOT of injection questions and problems as of late...

reguarding aspirating from the article-
"If blood appears in the syringe on aspiration,
the needle is in a blood vessel. If this occurs, stop
the injection, withdraw the needle, prepare another injection with new equipment, and inject another site. Donít inject the bloody solution."
My question is, should you squirt the blood out and reinsert the pin, or get a whole new one or what? I thought I read before that it doesnt really matter if you inject the blood back into you, is that true?
BTW thanks Red for the read

Im pretty sure because if you recap and dont put directly in the sharps container it can be mistaken for a non used needle. My ex's mom is a nurse im pretty sure she told me a story about it once.

But doesnt the blood that you pulled out mix with the gear? So you would be shooting out some of gear/blood?

could this be a sticky or an insert into the educational forums?

Well, personally the few times I've hit blood I simply squirt most of the blood back out, changed needles and stuck it back into a new spot.
Since blood is watery, it barely (if at all) mixes with oil in the pin, and as stated above, I don't see how a fraction of a drop of blood injected intra-muscle could cause any problems.
Any opinions from the docs or nurses on the board?
