Hey Everyone We've gotten a lot of questions in here about the ventrogluteal injection site, so hopefully this will help clear things up a bit for everyone. I wish the pictures were better, but its frick'n hard as hell to take pictures while injecting. So if anyone has any questions let me know. Hopefully they are easy to follow and understand. I'll also attach a pdf if people have questions on injection technique. http://home.earthlink.net/~miche1/intrainj.pdf VG over view: 1. Find the trochanter. It is the knobby top portion of the long bone in your upper leg (femur). It is about the size of a golf ball. 2. Find the anterior iliac crest. The nurse will help you find the bone landmarks. 3. Place the palm of your hand over the trochanter. Point the first or index finger toward the anterior iliac crest. Spread the second or middle finger toward the back, making a 'V'. The thumb should always be pointed toward the front of the leg. Always use the index finger and middle finger to make the 'V'. 4. Give the injection between the knuckles on your index and middle fingers. 5. Stretch the skin tight. 6. Hold the syringe like a pencil or dart. Insert the needle at a right angle to the skin (90 degree). 7. You may give up to 3 ml. (cc) of fluid in this site.
