Would an iodine injection for an IVP affect lab results for TSH?
i have an i v p injection as when i was 4 yrs old i fell ill and came down with phneomonia and as a result i had to have the i v p injection.when i was on the table,having it,there was a complicaton and i had been told that the person who did it they had put the needle into my muscle and i had been told that if i come down with any sort of thing like phneomonia then it will kill me ! anonymous.
When administering a subcutaneous injection why would you avoid an injection site that is hardened or fatty?
If the iodine in the Gram's stain was omitted, the crystal violet which enters the cell will not be able to form the Crystal Violet Iodine (CVI) complex. The CVI complex molecule has a larger size than that of Crystal violet molecule and hence Gram +ve bacteria are able to retain the stain. If iodine were omitted, even Gram+ve cells would get decolorised by Alcohol treatment and would be seen as Gram-ve cells.
