Z-Track Method of Intramuscular Injection

The Z-Track method of IM injection is used to administer a drug into a large muscle, it prevents leakage of a irritating medication into the subcutaneous tissues. When using this method the skin is pulled to the side, the medication is injected and the skin is released. Here a seal is formed over the IM site which prevents seepage of the medication into the tissue. Z-Track method pictured above.
