Subcutaneous injections

  1. 0 Currently at work we are have a debate over subcutaneous injection techniques. Some people aspirate prior to injection to check for blood and some people don't. Current nursing literature is unclear as both views are supported in different articles. Can any one shed some light on which technique is better and why?

    I was taught to aspirate with any SQ injection except heparin and Lovenox. I always do and a couple of time I've been glad because before giving insulin and epi I got blood back. That's the best reason I can give from personal experience.
