I spent today doing lots of skills practice at school. We learnt how to take blood glucose readings (although I already do this at work but it was fun to test my own for a change). At least one part of me is normal!
Then we got to practice intramuscular (into the muscle) and subcutaneous (into the fat) injections using water to inject and a lovely slab of fake rubber skin as you can see below. So that was all good fun. I have done injections on placement before but it’s something I think is quite fun to practice. It’s much nicer to stab fake rubber skin with a needle than actual people.
