About Injections

An injection is a way of administering a sterile liquid form of medication into tissues of the body beneath the skin, usually using a sharp, hollow needle or tube. 

Intramuscular Injection (IM)

Intramuscular injections are injections into a muscle. They are traditionally given in the upper, outer quadrant of the buttock, but some intramuscular injections can also be given in the thigh or upper arm. 

Subcutaneous Injection (SC)

Subcutaneous injections (also referred to as ‘subcut’, ‘sub-Q’, or ‘SQ’) are injections that deliver medication into the layer of fat just under the skin.

Intravenous Injection (IV)

Intravenous injections deliver medication directly into a vein. Medications given via IV injections are usually done through a cannula to ensure that medication is administered into a patent vein and to avoid any leakage of medication into other tissues.

Who Needs Injections?

Some individuals require medication administration via injections instead of orally. This is usually because the drugs used do not absorb well in the digestive system or need to act quickly. 

While many injections are a one-off affair (such as vaccines), there are individuals who have to inject themselves regularly in day-to-day life. This includes insulin injections for those with diabetes, blood thinners to treat blood clots, and fertility treatments.

An injection is a way of administering a sterile liquid form of medication into tissues of the body beneath the skin, usually using a sharp, hollow needle or tube.

Injections are usually used for drugs which need to act quickly or do not absorb well in the digestive system.

Wonderful app wonderful service

Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.

Doctor is qualified, friendly

Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
