An injection guide comprises a holder being cylindrical shape. The holder is having a provision for insertion of a syringe. A base frame means to support for the syringe holder; primary angle unit and secondary angle unit, said units having a predetermined degree of angle varying from to a primary pointer and a secondary pointer, the primary pointer and the secondary pointer being connected to primary angle unit and secondary angle unit respectively. A slit being oval shape means to insert the needle; said slit being centrally placed in the said injection guide.
Aim and Objective: To provide am anually operated intramuscular and subcutaneous injection process.
Methods: Injections are administered invarious angles. Intramuscular injection is administered at 90°.Subcutaneous injection is at 45°.Intravenous injection is administered at 20° and intradermal injection is at 10 to15°. Many times errors in administration of injections were noted by health care professionals and as a result patient suffers from the complications which sometimes very severe and even in the case, the death might be happened due to this error.
Results: For intravenous (20° angle), intramuscular (90° angle) and intradermal (10° angle)injection, except length of the syringe holder, the dimension of other components was varied and it was selected as per the type of the injection.
Conclusion: Not only primary and secondary angle unit of the device but also length of the syringe holder is critical in order to achieve the desired angle for the injection.
