Self-injection planning helper.
Have an overview of the location and age of your injections.
This application is intended for patients whose long-term treatment requires injections at regular intervals. As a general rule, they are trained in the technique of self-injection in order to be able to treat themselves without the help of a health professional. A different injection site must be chosen each time, which reduces the risk of irritation or pain.
Examples of conditions concerned: multiple sclerosis, diabetes (glucose reading and insulin), cancers, asthma, renal failure, hematological diseases, psoriasis, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
Injected medications can cause side effects such as erythema, pain, induration, pruritus, edema, inflammation, hypersensitivity, etc. In this case, a regular rotation of the injection sites (locations of the injections) must be respected in order to ensure a sufficient tissue rest period for each site.
In the “Sites” tab, link sites (designated by the letters of the alphabet) to the front figure or the back figure, by clicking the relevant button (“Front” or “Back”). The selected buttons change to green color.
In the “Front” and “Back” tabs, the sites are represented graphically by semitransparent dots, each containing a letter corresponding to the corresponding site. Position the dots on the desired locations, by dragging them. The application memorizes the locations in real time.
In the “Tracking” tab, to specify that an injection will be made in a given site, click on the “syringe” icon next to the site.
The age a site is the number of days since the last injection took place. It is displayed numerically on the same line as the letter designating the site, as well as in the form of a multicolored horizontal bar.
You can change the age of a site at any time by clicking on the corresponding letter.
When you exit and return to the Sites tab, the sites are reclassified automatically in descending order of injection. In other words, the first site displayed is the one in which the next injection is supposed to take place. However, you can choose another one if the one proposed does not suit you (residual pain, inflammation…).
