Intramuscular Injections are given directly to the muscles as they are rich in blood supply and
medications are absorbed faster. The common sites for IM injection include Deltoid, dorsogluteal, rectus
femoris, vastus lateralis and ventrogluteal. Larger amount of medication can be given through the IM route
compared to other routes of administration. Medications like Atropine, Naloxone, Ketamine, Penicillin,
Diazepam, Hepatitis vaccine, Rabies vaccine, Influenza vaccines are administered through intramuscular routes.
It is important to know about IM injections as improper administration of medications can cause various
complications. Some of the complications include Tissue necrosis, Abscess and Nerve injuries.The Aim of the
study is to determine regarding the usage of intramuscular injections and to create awareness among dental
students on administration of IM injections.Majority of the dental students within the study were aware of the
term intramuscular injections.

Key words: Intramuscular injections, Deltoid muscle, Nerve injury, Tissue necrosis.
