Take a vial of liquid, draw it into a syringe, rub the rubber cap of the powder vial with alcohol and inject liquid there.Shake the contents until dissolved. In the syringe, take the medicine, and then change the needle.
If the medicine is in ampoules, shake the ampoule, knock lightly on its tip, wipe the tip with alcohol. Saw the file handle base of the ampoule. If you find a paint spot on the ampoule, then there is already a cut there, in a narrow place. Break off the tip of the ampoule with a piece of fleece.

Stretching the skin at the injection site, quickly and firmly at right angles, insert the needle ¾ of its length into the muscle. Note that the needle must reach the muscle. Insufficiently deep injection may cause subsequent inflammation.

It is necessary to remove the needle with a quick movement, at the same angle from which it was inserted. After that, wipe the injection site again with alcohol.
