what is the point of aspirating, and what happens if u dont do it?

The point of aspiration is to assure that you are not injecting into a vein (very bad). If you don't do it, you risk injection into a vein (very bad).

Seriously though, just to make sure you're not injecting into a vein like Johnny Boy said. Chances are slim you would, but they are there and that would suck if you did.

If blood comes into the needle then pull it out and try again, but change the needle because it will have been dulled slightly and its not sanitary to use the same needle again. Some people say you have to remove the blood first, but its your own blood and one of the medical advisors on this board said you don't need to so I believe him.

But what else will come into the needle if not blood? I mean isn't there free blood throughout the muscle tissue? Something has to come into the suringe if you create a vaccum?

Me too, I always breath a little sigh of relief once I see those bubbles.

just a precautionary method that sould be used always. This way you don't hit a vein. Chances are slim that you would, but just in case, everything here is about doing the right thing, so do the right thing an asperiate.
