Focus of last paragraph (sub cu.)
The last paragraph of the subcutaneous injection section is confusing as to how much of it is just insulin-injection related and how much not.
Intradermal injections are more superficial injections than subcutaneous and are useful for, for example, the Mantoux test for tuberculosis exposure. Myron 12:12, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
Coughing during an injection might lessen the pain, but not by putting pressure on the spinal cord. Not only is this extremely untrue, increasing the spinal cord's pressure slightly wouldn't affect sensation that much. I think you'd need to show evidence that coughing even does increase the pressure in the spinal canal. coughing probably works by distracting the patient, but it might stuff up the injection by moving too much, if its too violent. I don't think wikipedia should advertise these sort of ideas, especially without any evidence.
Insulin injections are often given into the skin of the ventral abdomen (or "belly"). The "stomach" is an internal organ functionally located between esophagus and duodenum. Myron 12:15, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
As said to me:
it says that there are several types of injection, and then only lists two as major parts of the article.
the rest are out-linkedso subcutaneous is linked to, whereas intramuscular gets a summary and a "main article"
