Often, when treating a cold or to relieve a severe allergic reaction, the doctor prescribes a hot injection in the vein. Patients who at least once had to experience a similar procedure on themselves, permanently remember the sensations that arise after such an injection. First, it becomes warm in the mouth, and then this hot wave spreads all over the body.
What is hot prick?
Some mistakenly believe that such an action is caused by the fact that the solution is preheated. But this is not the case at all! Just for the injection is used a special drug consisting of a combination of organic and inorganic salts, which, entering the blood, leads to an increase in blood vessels. This provokes specific sensations, even though the drug has a temperature that is no higher than the body temperature of a healthy person.

- Provides muscle work.
- Participates in the delivery of nerve signals to the brain.
- Maintains good blood clotting.
- It is a component that forms bone tissue.
Given such a wide range of functions, there are many indications to prescribe a hot injection into a vein. These include:

When it is unacceptable to use calcium chloride?

- increased calcium in the body;
- respiratory failure;
- disorders of the kidneys and heart.
A hot injection into a vein will also not be included in the complex of therapeutic measures if the patient is prescribed cardiac glycosides.
Side Effects of Hot Injections
Many patients are afraid to do calcium chloride injections, as they are not sure that it is safe. In fact, if you strictly adhere to the instructions and take into account contraindications, then no undesirable reactions will occur.
But in some cases side effects can still occur. These include not very pleasant sensations - a burning sensation in the mouth and throughout the body. Also, blood pressure sometimes decreases after an injection. If the product gets into the muscle, it can lead to severe irritation and necrosis.
If the drug is injected too quickly or combined in the same syringe with other medicines, then an increase in heart rate is possible, and this sometimes leads to cardiac arrest.
