Somethings Really Piss Me Off  This is one of them !

One of the things that REALLY pisses me off is seeing a photo of someone giving an injection in the tricep. The arm muscle to give injections into is the deltoid –indicated by the red arrow below. The tricep is just so wrong !

    Someone asked me why you shouldn’t use the Tricep muscle for IM injection—the answer is The radial, brachial and ulnar nerves and profunda brachii artery are under the triceps muscle. So this muscle is not used for injection for fear of damaging these and other structures.
