TEST QUESTION: Insulin Administration


CORRECT ANSWER:

D) Abdomen SQ tissue


MORE INFO ON ANSWER:

Make sure that sites are rotated however. Injected in the same place can cause a buildup of fat under the skin this decreasing the absorption rate of the insulin. Injecting in the SQ tissue of the abdomen helps speed the absorption rate of the insulin. Some areas will not absorb as quickly. Another good site is the back of the arm. Sometimes providers will order IV insulin in certain emergent situations-generally this rapidly lowers the the glucose. It is not suitable or recommended for continuous use though (increased risk for thrombosis or infection)- diapedia.org
