Abstract/Description

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization no longer recommend aspiration during intramuscular injections. However, the assumption that this technique is not necessary cannot be backed up by credible research. If there is any chance of an adverse reaction being prevented, the necessary actions should be taken to do so. In this case, the action is aspirating before administering IM injections. Studies have shown that blood aspiration occurs in all intramuscular injection sites. Simplifying the technique of IM injections could have major consequences that could be prevented by correctly aspirating.
