    Quick Injection Question

    When injecting into the thigh (quad) is it proper to bring the needle vertically down from above into the quad or proper to bring it horizontally from the side into the quad? Or does it matter?

    Hey bro, u want to go in horizontally from the side. There are allot more nerve and veins running threw the top part of the quad.

    OG is right on, (as usual!) side wall the thigh about 2/3 of the way to the knee... flex before (NOT during) you inject to locate a good meaty spot.
    be sure to aspirate

    I always go diagonally actually. You want to go perpendicular to the muscle surface, so I guess it depends on where you are injecting.
