Intramuscular Injection

   Putting a fluid into a muscle with a needle and syringe.


Tissue made up of bundles of long, slender cells that contract when stimulated.

A device used to inject medications or other liquids into body tissues. The syringe for insulin has a hollow plastic or glass tube (barrel) with a plunger inside. The plunger forces the insulin through the needle into the body. Most insulin syringes now come with a needle attached. The side of the syringe has markings to show how much insulin is being injected.


Intra-aortic Balloon Pump Assist Device
The intra-aortic balloon pump is a machine that can help the pumping function of the heart. It is usually inserted through an artery in the groin area and threaded backwards into the descending thoracic aorta in the chest. In this location the balloon inflates and deflates in synchrony with the heart in order to aid the blood pumping function of the heart in patients with cardiac disease.

Injection into an artery (that may supply a tumor).

Intracardiac Tumor
An Intracardiac Tumor can be any tumor of the heart, either malignant or benign. The most common tumor of the heart is a benign atrial myxoma.

Within cells.

Located within the cerebral hemispheres (cerebrum). See extracerebral.

Intracerebral haemorrhage
Haemorrhage within the brain.

Within the skull.

Intracutan test
Intracutan tests are used to diagnose allergies. A small amount of allergen extract is injected under the skin on your arm. If the area becomes itchy, reddish and swelling you may have an allergy.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection
An assisted reproductive method in which a sperm is injected directly into an unfertilized egg with a microscopic needle; this procedure is used in cases of severe male factor infertility.

Within the skin.

Beneath the dura mater.

Intra (within) muscular (muscle) techniques are ways to put medication into the body, by injecting it into a muscle. This is designed for drugs that need to be absorbed slowly. A classic example is a tetanus shot.

Its use in the early states of mesothelioma in the chest is being studied. Judgement - an official court order deciding the rights or claims of the parties in a legal proceeding.

Inserting chemotherapy drugs directly into the chest cavity.

Intrarater reliability
The property of yielding equivalent results when used by the same rater on different occasions.

Injection into the sub-arachnoid space of the meninges. Usually done by lumbar puncture.

Injection into a tumor (usually performed during surgery).

Within the womb.

Intrauterine device
A small engineered piece of plastic or metal placed in a woman's uterus to prevent fertilization.

Intrauterine growth retardation
Slow growth of a fetus in the womb possibly resulting in a low birth weight baby.

Intrauterine insemination
Treatment for infertility in which semen is introduced into the uterus via a slim tube inserted through the vagina.

Inside a blood vessel.

Intravascular echocardiography
Echocardiography and cardiac catheterization.

Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)
An invasive procedure, performed along with cardiac catheterization; a miniature sound probe (transducer) on the tip of a coronary catheter is threaded through the coronary arteries and, using high-frequency sound waves, produces detailed images of the interior walls of the arteries.

Introducing a fluid into the bloodstream through a vein (usually in the patient's forearm).

Intravenous (IV)
Delivery of drugs, fluids or food directly into a vein.

Intravenous Injection
Putting a fluid into a vein with a needle and syringe.

Injection into a ventricle.

Intraventricular hemorrhage
Bleeding into the ventricles or the brain, common in premature infants.

Intrinsic asthma
Asthma that has no apparent external cause.

Pertaining to a sensory organ that registers information from within the body.

The insertion of one part into another; in sexual intercourse, the insertion of the penis into the vagina.

A segment of DNA that does not code for protein; the intervening sequence of nucleotides between coding sequences or exons.

Intron a
Intron a is a prescription or over-the-counter drug which is (or once was) approved in the United States and possibly in other countries. Active ingredient(s): interferon alfa-2b.

Self-observation; examination of one's feelings, often as a result of psychotherapy.

Preoccupation with oneself and accompanying reduction of interest in the outside world. Contrast to extraversion.


Insulin Sensitizer
Any of several diabetes medications that reduce insulin resistance. Examples include metformin (Glucophage) and the thiazolidinediones (or "glitazones") rosiglitazone (Avandia) and pioglitazone (Actos).

Insulin Shock
A term no longer used. See Hypoglycemia; insulin reaction.

A tumor of the beta cells in areas of the pancreas called the islets of Langerhans. Although not usually cancerous, such tumors may cause the body to make extra insulin and may lead to a blood glucose (sugar) level that is too low.

Intermittent Claudication
Pain in the muscles of the leg that occurs off and on, usually while walking or exercising, and results in lameness (claudication). The pain results from a narrowing of the blood vessels feeding the muscle. Drugs are available to treat this condition.

Intensive Management
A form of treatment for insulin-dependent diabetes in which the main objective is to keep blood glucose (sugar) levels as close to the normal range as possible. The treatment consists of three or more insulin injections a day or use of an insulin pump; four or more blood glucose tests a day; adjustment of insulin, food intake, and activity levels based on blood glucose test results; dietary counseling; and management by a diabetes team.

Intramuscular Injection

Intravenous Injection
Putting a fluid into a vein with a needle and syringe.

IAA antiinsulin
GAD65 anti glutamic acid decarboxylase |ICA512 a specific islet cell antibody |EMA antiendomyseal antibodies (a test for celiac synmdrome, another autoimmune disorder occurring in 5% of new-onset Type 1 diabetes)

Islet Cell Transplantation
Moving the beta (islet) cells from a donor pancreas and putting them into a person whose pancreas has stopped producing insulin. The beta cells make the insulin that the body needs to use glucose (sugar) for energy. Although transplanting islet cells may one day help people with diabetes, the procedure is still in the research stage. Transplantation of the pancreas itself is surgically feasible, and is sometimes advised for some patients. |See also: Pancreas Transplant.

Dental Implants are titanium inserts that are surgically placed into the jawbone by an oral surgeon or a periodontist, and then allowed to integrate into the bone. This process may take up to six months. The implants then can be restored with a post and an artificial tooth that is either screwed into the implant or cemented onto the implant. Implants are more costly than crowns, dentures or bridges and are appropriate only for patients who demonstrate good oral hygiene. Implants enable the dentist to provide the patient with artificial teeth that look and function much more like natural teeth and are as secure as natural teeth. Implants also may be attached to a denture to allow denture wearers a more secure and functional option. Patients must follow the proper home care instructions and visit the dentist at the recommended intervals or the implants can fail or fracture. There are no strict age limitations as to who can receive implants; in fact, implants have been placed on children, adults and the elderly.

Inlays and onlays are more permanent types of restorations similar in longevity to crowns. A more conservative tooth preparation is done which allows a tooth to maintain more of its original characteristics. A mold is made with a special plaster and from that model the inlay or onlay is custom made. Inlays and onlays can be fabricated from gold, porcelain or a composite resin. The inlay or onlay is then cemented or bonded into place to give the tooth superior support. An inlay differs from an onlay in that the onlay material covers one or more cusps of a tooth and generally is a better choice if the tooth has a fracture.
