    Why didn't you inject it in the first place? You could inject an entire syringe of air into your muscle and you'd live.. I'm sure the few little bits of air wouldn't have hurt you.

    The concerns with air are mostly with injections into the blood stream, and even then you'd need about 15+cc's to stop your heart.

    Although this is true injecting air into your muscle wont hurt you. Wouldnt it take less then 15 ccs to cause someones heart to stop.?

    funny enough people don't volunteer to study how much air it takes to kill you lol... there are studied that say it's 300cc, some say 20cc.. in this article they say a doctor injected 30cc and it didn't kill the patient:

    A doctor told me one of the times I was hooked up to IV in the hospital and was watching the air bubbles in the line. he said don't worry, would need at least 15cc. in any case, the movies have blown this WAAAY out of proportion.

    yeah ik what u mean.. having undergone 6 months of chemo i have watched many airbubbles enter my veins with no ill efffects. Of course i asked as well and they said that it would take a considerable amount more of air.

    Sad but true many a monkey has been injected with large volumes of air to study and document the lack of danger that air bubbles present. Don't get me wrong I am all for legit animal research when there are no other alternatives but back in the 60s every damn org was busy overdosing monkeys on this that and the other to get their name on a research paper.

    I personally would just let this shot go. It's not worth the risk. Next time, though I would've just used that gear right then.

    Isnt what he is trying to say is should he just put a new pin on it? Why throw the syringe (not the needle) away and use the test in it except for the fact it's sort of a no brainier and since he is young maybe a little to clueless?
