    he isnt going to be flattered, post is ancient.

    better to create threads rather than bumping old ones.

    you want to see the vacuum bubble each time, better than blood and having to re-site.

I will obviously never do it again. but this is just to inform you that I never died or had any serious problems.
    on another note, wtf was this guy doing????!!!!!! lol

    Yes but from what I understand IV and IM are two different things if
    they're going to the muscular tissue its not the same as going straight into the bloodstream

    Nice read, but when you're injecting steroids . Is there a problem with possibly injecting air in your body..?

    I don't think so right..?

    I know someone that committed suicide this way. It didn't take much to do the job, all he had was insulin syringes. This wasn't a friend of a friend situation either.

    I would venture a guess as to where the injection takes place has in impact, if the bubble gets to the lungs first your ok, if it doesn't your toast.

    You would have to shoot air into your carotid artery for it to go straight to your brain.

    Then I would venture a guess all of the veins we have access to from like in the surface of our arms all go to our lungs.

    I would assume it would take a hell of a lot of air then. As a diver, it's favorable for air to be taken to the lungs, too much results in "the chokes" but you don't die.

    As a qualified combat medic, i've heard from my instructors, nurses, surgeons and doctors that it can take up to 100cc's or more to actually kill someone, but theres reported cases of minimal amounts killing people too, so my advice is don't do it at all, but you'll know right away if you've done any harm
