            Medication administration routeDescription
Drugs are delivered by mouth through the alimentary tract.
Involves placing a drug under your tongue to dissolve and absorb into your blood through the tissue there.
Administration of a medication by this route involves placing the medication in the mouth against the mucous membranes of the cheek, where it stays until it dissolves
Medications are dispersed via an aerosol spray, mist, or powder that patients inhale into their airways ( via mouth or nose)
A short needle is used to inject a drug into the tissue layer between the skin and the muscle
Involves inserting a needle into the tissue below the subcutaneous tissue into a muscle to enable the administration of liquid medications
This means drugs are sent directly into your vein using a needle or tube.
Administration of medications by a route that bypasses the GI tract

Delivery of liquid nutritional support through a tube inserted into the gastrointestinal tract. It is used for patients who are unable to meet their nutritional requirements through oral intake

Administration of a drug by the way of the nose. The richly supplied vascular nature of the nasal mucosa coupled with its high drug permeation makes the nasal route of administration attractive for many drugs, including proteins and peptides..
Into the eye. Sufficient concentration to produce a beneficial therapeutic effect is determined by the dynamics of ocular pharmacokinetics: absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion.
Medications administered per rectum (PR) are ideal for local or systemic treatment, as the rectal mucosa has a blood and lymph supply that is capable of effective systemic absorption.
Medication administered vaginally. Some drugs may be administered vaginally to women as a solution, tablet, cream, gel, suppository, or ring. The drug is slowly absorbed through the vaginal wall.
Into the ear, Drugs used to treat ear inflammation and infection can be applied directly to the affected ears. Ear drops containing solutions or suspensions are typically applied only to the outer ear canal.
