Getting a shot with air bubbles in them shouldn't do much harm, as long as you aren't getting a shot into your blood stream. Air bubbles that get into your heart are bad, potentially fatal. I don't think there is anything you can do about it after the fact. You can prevent it though. When nurses and doctors put liquids into a syringe, they tip the sharp end up and flick it, then they squirt a little out, this gets rid of the bubbles.
If you're worried about getting a shot, don't be. You're getting it from a trained professional.
Check the syringe for air bubbles. Air bubbles in the syringe will not harm you if they are injected, but they can reduce the amount of insulin in the syringe. To remove air bubbles, tap the syringe so the air bubbles rise to the top and push up on the plunger to remove the air bubbles. Recheck the dose and add more insulin to the syringe if necessary. I was told that they would harm u and act as a clot in ur heart and would be fatal, but i wanted to go to WEB MD just to see what it said and that's what I found.
Yeppers, and I'm not about to tell you how to remove them if you don't already know. You wanna know? Go to med school.

no it cant kill u but will efect the amount of inslin in the shot just tap the shot then plus the plunger up a lill to get rid of them i do it 2 a day with my insilin and i m still alive and i have gotten air bubbels before so nope it dont kill u
not unless the shot is IV, in your vien. and even then its highly unlikely, ive been a nurse 20yrs and in dialysis for about 10yrs ive seen scary amounts of air go in, and small amounts and seen NO reaction to either, though it is never a good idea to allow ANY air to enter the bloodstream.
