Intradermal injections are commonly used for antibody and allergy testing, where the substance needs to be injected between the layers of the skin. This module explains how to prepare for and administer intradermal injections into the various sites (anterior forearm, upper chest, upper back) using medication from vials and ampules. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three scenarios that test your ability to administer intradermal injections into the different sites. Practice the steps of the procedure as often as you want until you are confident. This module is based on the entry-level competencies for which the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) test the Medical Assistant.
