Default Best site for IM injections

Here's some IM injection info I found useful that some people may not be aware of or at least it's not very popular. I'm referring to the Ventrogluteal area for IM injections. It's the area on the side right below the pelvic bone there.

According to the searches I've done it's actually now the preferred site in hospitals and nursing texts, (even over the popular dorsogluteal site) some hospitals having forbidden all other sites (if possible) in lieu of this site. Much safer than any other spots due to a smaller concentration of nerves and veins. The main reason given in every study I was able to find is an almost total lack of problems.

I've just recently became refamiliar with it myself. I remember reading about it some time back but have never tried it until about a week ago. I can tell you it's absolutely painless. By far my favorite site now. If you're not using it I really believe you're missing out and it gives 2 more sites to add into your rotation to give that much more rest to other areas.

Check it out:

Thanks, me too! I'll never get over hating needles! Try this site though if you haven't. Once you do you'll love it. It's really painless.

I hate to say it man, but it has nothing to do with the pain of it. Its wierd, whenever they take blood I pass out, and getting shots makes me queezy ... yet i have no problem with accupunture treatments.

I have hear it is a nerve disfunction, something to do with compounding pressure or something. I dont know, shit dude i even pass out when they give me an IV ... I guess its a blessing in disquise, it kept me off the juice when I was younger, so its not all bad.

Wow, sorry to hear that. Gotta be a tough thing to deal with. Nothing to be embarrassed over though, my brother's the same way. Has nothing to do with "being a man". He can't help it, he's just made that way.
