Question[edit]

Can anybody tell me what the recommended amount per intramuscular injection is, include deltoid, and ventroglutrial areas please. I am a nursing student, 18 days away from graduating and I am trying to disprove a question, in which my instructor accepted an answer of 4 mls per injection, and I gave 2 mls on my answer. This may have caused me to fail the entire program, because I failed this math test last week. I need expert help! Please reply asap to girlbronson@yahoo.com Thank in advance. 71.31.87.182 20:16, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

You can give up to 5ml in ventroglutrialm and no more tham 1ml in deltoid.  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.239.219.212 (talk) 02:03, 27 August 2008 (UTC) 


I can understand the confusion, because I was taught you can give up to a certain amount of cc's, but for the comfort of the patient, you would never want to inject more than 3 cc's in the same spot. Particularly, the deltoid. but, like all nursing questions....there is always more than one answer. The best answer is up to the teacher...oh wait....lol :o)66.229.6.62 (talk) 08:05, 1 February 2009 (UTC) good luck
