Rapid Push technique

Manual administration of medication

Rapid Push is a way of delivering medication to the body subcutaneously without an infusion pump.

The Rapid Push method(1,2) can be a simple and convenient method for certain patients. The patient needs a syringe and an infusion set. Rapid Push requires a needle gauge of at least 24G. The medication is then delivered manually.
