Best site for IV injection

SWIM would like to know what would be the best site for SWIM's first IV injection that would be easiest to hit and conceal, and maybe the least painful.

swIMO depend, very easy can be over the hand making vein more visible using an hemostatic lace, it wont leave any visible sign if maded carrefully or at least much more little than in the middle of swim's harm's, but again these are very personal facts, it can change swims by swims.
Just a tip for swims, do be in pain during this operation and if possible dont do it..

Re: Best site for IV injection

Under the tongue, on the tops of the feet, near the underarms, and near the groin are places one can hide injection sites, or course these are painful places to hit, depending on the person...

Re: Best site for IV injection

The tongue? How the hell did swiy manage that?

SWIM has always found the vein on the inside of her elbow to be the easiest spot to hit, it's large, visible, easy to reach, doesn't roll and doesn't usually bruise if just using once (if it does bruise long sleeves will cover it). The veins on the wrists roll and swim found these bruise easily. The veins on feet and hands are small (harder to hit) and painful to inject into. Inner thigh can be dangerous if swiy doesn't know the correct spot, as can the neck. Other large veins on the arms work ok too, depending on the size of swiy's veins, males usually find these veins big enough and easy to use.

Re: Best site for IV injection

Sounds like upper arm is by far the best, and it's easy to conceal, just don't wear any sleevless shirts. From heroinhelper.com

Where to Inject

Choosing an injection location should not be determined solely on where veins can be found. Some areas of the body are more safe to inject into than are others. Below is a list of injection areas in order from safest to least safe.
  1. Arms: The upper arm is the best place in which to inject--there are relatively few nerves there and the veins are large. Just the same, the veins tend to roll, so this must be taken into account.
  2. Hands and Wrist: There are more nerve endings here and the veins tend to be smaller and more delicate and thus more prone to damage. On the positive side, they are easy to find and stable.
  3. Legs: These veins are at greater risk of forming blood clots. Interrupting blood flow in the legs is particularly serious because these veins are the most important for bringing blood back to the heart.
  4. Feet: These veins are even more delicate than those in the hands. There is also relatively poor circulation to the feet which means that damage done is repaired slowly. Special care should be taken to clean the feet if they are used for injection because of the possibility of infection.
  5. Groin: The largest vein in this area--the femoral vein--is very close to the femoral artery. It is easy to miss the vein and hit the artery--causing the usual problems.
  6. Neck: Just as in the groin, it is easy to miss a vein and hit an artery. Hitting the carotid artery is potentially fatal. Even apart from injecting into an artery, damaging the veins that go from the brain is very dangerous. The brain needs blood more than any other part of the body.

Re: Best site for IV injection

Swim always assumed medical people use the one in the crook of the arm for a reason, and defered to their judgement. It is the first place people look for needle marks.

Re: Best site for IV injection

My cat is almost always using her cephalic vein (crook of the elbow) for obvious reasoning. She's shot in the wrist before with success, same with the hands.
When rotating, she keeps in mind that we have veins that are peripheral to the cephalic.

She bangs morphine daily nowadays, heroin if she can score (easier for her to get morphine or oxycodone) and her typical cycle is:

Right cephalic at the crook, right peripheral, left cephalic at the crook, left peripheral, right cephalic higher, left cephalic higher.
That's when she's got clean arms haha

Aside from that, after she may do the hands at the vein along the middle finger, then feet, then groin.

Depends on her state I guess, for instance, her cephalic veins at the moment just look bruised and abused with little remorse or shame... But then she is always stressed right out recently so that makes sense.
Not two weeks ago, she looked as if she may not even use just because it wasn't daily.

Keep in mind the risk of extravasation if that's not been noted. Remember to let the tourniquet go before banging hahaha
When my cat was new at the IVing game, she shot 2cc of diamorphine (2cc for dilution, like). She plunged 2cc's of fluid into her bulging veins, the hit masking the safety bit... She shot too quick, pulled out too quick and didn't release her tourniquet... You can guess how that turned out lmao I swear her vein forced 1/4 of the solution a solid foot in the air.
Now we look back on this shite and she is totally embarrassed about her ignorance

HOWEVER, she missed a shot ONCE and got a lovely SC injection of lorazepam that burned too much for her liking. Then after the extravasation incident, never fucked up again haha
Two unpleasant experiences right away kind of got the message to her

IV is dangerous and if that's how the user chooses to use, then they must be smart about it!
Sterilize, keep a sharps bin, deliberate. Filtration is key imho

My cat found that the best way to work around the tourniquet is to use something like a tenser bandage, stretch out about two-foot and bite down on the long end. Wrap the bandage firmly around the bicep twice and pull the remaining stretch into the armpit which is used to hold the limp end tight.
Flex hand and make fist, flex arm back two or three times, [sterilize], slap the site a few times if needed.
-Now she found its a lot easier to simply shift her arm to release or at least used to use this method. Now she uses a belt actually, with a similar idea though.

Re: Best site for IV injection

The Crackoon generally used the backs of his paws, but that's not really advisable. The best spot is probably the vein on the thumb side of the forearm, about an inch and a half back from the wrist, just tie off and you'll see it, it normally sits in a little indent and isn't visible when not deliberately dilated.
