dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to compare the incidence, severity, and duration of reported pain following the administration of · sterile water (2cc) by intramuscular injection into the ventrogluteal and dorsogluteal sites. The sample consisted of 16 adult healthy volunteers. Subjects received a single injection of sterile water at each site in a cross-over fashion. lmmedia~ely following the injection and· at specific time intervals the subjects rated their pain utilizing a· visual analog (VAS) and verbal descriptor (VDS) scale. T-test for dependent samples revealed differences (Jl.=.015) between the sites in the incidence of pain overall assessed by VDS. Two-way ANOVA showed differences (g,=.0001 to g,=.0007) for site and time for the severity of pain overall assessed by bo_th scales. Chi-Square test revealed differences (g,=.028) for 15 min. and (g,=.049) for 720 min. time intervals assessed by VDS and VAS respectively. The dorsogluteal site was reported by the participants to be less painful.en_US
