In my anatomy class, we had to search online and answer what buttocks muscle is used for IM injections and why. I searched and came accross an article, and so I answered that it is the gluteus medius because it avoids major nerves and blood vessels, and it has landmarks that are easy to identify.
First question, do you think that is the correct answer? The reason I ask is that I remember hearing that the gluteus maximus was the most popular site. I am a little confused. Thanks
Second question should you care to answer it, is what gluteal site do you use and why?
