PROCEDURE FOR INTRAMUSCULAR INJECTION OF THE MARK 1 KIT
Apply firm, even
pressure (not jabbing motion)
to the injector until it
pushes the needle into your thigh (or buttocks).Using a jabbing motion may result in an improper injection or injury to the thigh or buttocks.
Hold the injector firmly in place for at least 10 seconds. The
seconds can be estimated by counting "one thousand
one," "one thousand two," and so forth.
Firm pressure automatically triggers the coiled spring mechanism. This plunges the needle through the clothing into the muscle and at the same time injects the antidote into the muscle tissue.
Carefully remove the autoinjector from your injection site.
