I administered a pneumothorax vaccination subcutaneously in the adipose tissue of a patient's right arm. The area became swollen and painful. Was I wrong? Is subcutaneous tissue confine to just the abdomen, thigh, or arm? I know that these are the preferred sites for sub Q, but can it not be delivered anywhere else where there is adipose tissue enough to contain the drug?
