Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-15871375
Traditionally, the dorsogluteal site has been the site preferred by nurses for the administration of medication via intramuscular injection. However, there is evidence to support the use of the ventrogluteal site. It was recently advocated as the site of choice in a respected nursing manual. This article discusses the use of the ventrogluteal site, the intramuscular injection technique, and issues associated with teaching it.
