injection(redirected from intradermal injection)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Medical, Wikipedia.
injection(insertion) The process of boosting a spacecraft into a particular orbit or trajectory. It is also the time of such action or the entry itself.
the introduction of small quantities of medicine in solution or emulsion into subcutaneous tissue, intramuscularly, or intravenously with syringe and needle. With injection a more rapid effect is achieved than with ingestion, as well as precise dosage and reliability of effect. With injection, medication may be introduced regardless of the condition of the patient, such as unconsciousness and inability to swallow. For localized effect medicinal solutions are injected into the pleural cavity or joints; intradermal injections are used for analgesia and for diagnostic purposes, for example, the Mantoux reaction for diagnosing tuberculosis. Intracardiac injection is resorted to when there is a sudden heart stoppage (injury from electric shock, gas poisoning, and narcosis). Injection into the cerebrospinal canal is done for analgesia and treatment of certain diseases. The rules of asepsis must be observed without fail in injection.
What does it mean when you dream about an injection?
In traditional psychoanalysis, a dream about an injection is often viewed as a dream about sexual intercourse. Can also indicate an influence that is forced on us. If we had bad experiences with being inoculated as children, then an injection dream can represent any number of different anxieties and fears.
for all a,b in A, f(a) = f(b) => a = b.
I.e. no two different inputs give the same output (contrast many-to-one). This is sometimes called an embedding. Only injective functions have left inverses f' where f'(f(x)) = x, since if f were not an injection, there would be elements of B for which the value of f' was not unique. If an injective function is also a surjection then is it a bijection.
f x = (x, 0).
The opposite of an injection function is a projection function which extracts a component of a constructed object, e.g.
fst (x,y) = x.
We say that f injects its argument into the data type and fst projects it out.
