At long last, practicing with needles

Today in skills lab we practiced assembling syringes and drawing up subcutaneous, intramuscular, and intradermal medications for injection. The "meds" were fake, but the needles were real.

Syringes and fake meds

After spring break, we'll practice actually injecting meds into the mannequins, which are quite creepy.

More photos here. I'll spare you the mannequin genitalia. At least for now.


  1. That mannequin looks really apprehensive.

  2. Probably because some student is going to be sticking a needle into his rump at some point in the near future.

  3. But I wanna see the mannequin genitalia.
