[ MUSIC PLAYING] Hey there, I’mSophia and I’m going to walk you throughhow to infuse low quantity HCG under the skinor subcutaneously. These educations are brokenup into five immediate stairs. Let’s start by makingsure you’ve got all your furnishes ready to go– a multi-dose vial of lowdose HCG or deepened vial of HCG dilution at office tempfor your convenience, a syringe with needle attached forinjection, plus alcohol pads, a gauze pad or cottonsquare, a sharps container, and a clean-living surface.In contingency you’re wondering, a compounded medication entails the pharmacistprepared it in a way that’s unique for your therapy, and your vial probably reached in a grassland boxversus a special kit. All of this is totally normal. Now is a good timeto double check to make sure you’re using theright HCG at the right time. Low dose HCG is usedto stimulate follicles at the start of treatment. You don’t want to use the HCGtrigger shot at this stage because it has amuch higher dose and performs a differentpurpose later on. If you’re doubtful orhave any questions, call your health care provider. You may getprescriptions or supplyings that use “cc” or”mL” interchangeably. Don’t worry. They’re just different namesfor the same amount of publication. For sample, one ccis equal to one mL.Now go ahead and washyour hands really well with soap and water. Then you’re on to preparing thearea where you’ll give yourself the insertion. There are a few places whereyou can inject your drug under the skin– in the abdomen, just below or tothe side of your belly button, or in the leg in the upperouter field of your thigh. No significance which area you pick, try to avoid injecting yourself in the same exact spot each timeto lower your risk of a scalp action, and neverinject into any area that’s tender, red, bruised, or hard-bitten. For today, I’ll indicate youhow to administer in the abdomen since it’s the most common spot. First, you use analcohol wipe to cleanse the scalp about two inchesaround the injection area. Then impart it a couple ofseconds to cool while you get your medication ready.Now you’ll withdrawthe drug. If you’re using the vial forthe first time, remove the cap and erase the top of thevial with an booze swab. Only retain to do thisevery time you reuse a vial. There are two things youshould check before is moving forward. One, the mixture shouldbe clear with no particles swimming around. And two, make sure thelow dose HCG is not more than 28 daytimes from the firsttime you used it or expired. If you see any particlesor if it’s past the appointment, don’t use it, and call yourhealth care provider right away for next steps. When you’re ready, unwrap the syringe and remove the needle cap. Draw air into thesyringe by drawing back the piston to the unitmark that parallels your dosage. For instance, if yourdoctor prescribed 40 cells, draw back to the4 0 on the syringe. Place the vial ona flat skin-deep, and slip the needlethrough the rubber stopper and into the vial. Gently press theplunger all the way in, which thrusts theair into the vial and reaches it easier to withdraw.Without removing the needle, turn the vial upside down. Make sure the gratuity of the needlestays submerged in the answer as you gradually pull back theplunger to withdraw your quantity. You’ll only be using aportion of prescription for every injection, soit’s really important to double check and giveyourself the title quantity , not the entire vial. With the needle andvial still upside down, check to see if there are anyair suds inside the syringe. If there aren’t any, goahead and remove the needle and syringe from the vial.If you picture bubbles, press the piston to push the bubblesback into the vial. You’ll have to withdrawyour dosage again, so repeat the earlier stair of submergingthe gratuity of the needle in the mixture and slowlypull back the plunger to withdraw your dosage. You’re ready to introduce themedication, so let’s do it. Hold the syringe in one handand with the other hand, pinch a crimp of skinaround the injection area. Insert the entire needlestraight into the skin at a 45 to 90 stage direction. Slowly push theplunger until you’ve injected all of the prescription. Do a immediate counting of1, 2, 3, and then let go of the skinyou’re penny-pinching. Press down securely on theinjection place with a gauze pad and remove the needle. Nice work. Your final step is cleanup. Go onward and toss theused needle and syringe into the sharp-witteds container.And if you have anylow dose HCG left over, accumulate the vial in yourfridge in between infusions. Thanks so much better forwatching today. Take care.[ MUSIC PLAYING].
