IM and ID injections

  1. 0
    What volume would you use a TB syringe for a IM injection. I know you would have to change the needle to an IM needle... I just need a baseline to go off of for test out. Going above 0.5 ml will make it easier to contaminate. Just need some suggestions.
    Let's say you use a TB syringe and change the needle to a 23g 1 1/2 in needle, you would put the needle on before you draw up the medication...right?

    I'm curious as to why you would use a TB syringe?

    Anyways, I agree, test outs make smart ones into dumb ones sometimes! I just had one today lol.
