Jet Injectors = Jet Infectors

May 21, 2016

Theses photographs capture corpsmen holding the jet injector at an incorrect angle. The Army Medical Department Handbook of Basic Nursing stated the jet injector must be placed upon the skin at a 90 degree angle otherwise the jet stream could lacerate the skin.

Place at a 90 degree angle
(Army Medical Department Handbook of Basic Nursing, 1970)

The jet injector must be pressed firmly yet evenly upon the patient’s skin.

Place evenly and firmly
(Army Medical Department Handbook of Basic Nursing, 1970)
Note the angle created from the vaccine’s arm and the jet injector does not create a 90 degree angle.
