Injection is the act of putting a liquid, especially a drug, into a person's body using a needle (usually a hypodermic needle) and a syringe. Injection is a technique for delivering drugs by parenteral administration, that is, administration via a route other than through the digestive tract. Parenteral injection includes subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intraperitoneal, intracardiac, intraarticular and intracaver nous injection .
Injections are among the most common health care procedures, with at least 16 billion administered in developing and transitional countries each year. 95% of injections are administered in curative care, 3% are for immunization, and the rest for other purposes, such as blood transfusions. In some instances the term injection is used synonymously with inoculation even by different workers in the same hospital. This should not cause confusion; the focus is on what is being injected/inoculated, not the terminology of the procedure.
The pharmaceutical injection type of infiltration involves loading a volume of tissue with the drug, filling the interstitial space. Local anesthetics are often infiltrated into the dermis and hypodermis.
- Intramuscular injection (IM): Administering medication directly into muscle. This route is commonly used for immunizations.
- Subcutaneous injection (SC): Administering medication below epidermis and dermis layers into the subcutaneous tissue. This route is commonly used for insulin and heparin.
- Intradermal injection (ID): Delivers medication to the dermis, just below the epidermis. This route is
commonly used for local anesthetics prior to an invasive procedure.
