Q

True or False: The intravenous method of transmitting drugs involves swallowing the drug.

A

The answer is false. The intravenous method of transmitting drugs has nothing to do with swallowing the drug.

Drugs can be introduced into the body or taken in a number of ways, some of these ways are through swallowing (orally), injection (intravenously), absorption into the body, inhalation, insertion into other body cavities, etc.

The intravenous method of transmitting drugs involves introducing a drug into a patient by injecting it directly into the patient’s bloodstream or directly into the patient’s veins.

Swallowing a drug is classified as an oral method.
