I've only recently started dabbling with pinning and hear everyone freaking out about bubbles and drilling it into peoples heads to make sure you get them out...here's my gripe, i'll get all the air bubbles out, but when I aspirate, I get them anyways, so what's the deal? I understand the dangers of air bubbles with IV pinning, but with IM is it THAT big of a deal? It seems like I won't avoid them anyways. As long as I get them out before aspirating, are the new ones from aspirating okay to leave in there?

Unless your pumping a lot of air in a muscle, it won't effect it. Might cause some PIP, but i know from from first hand expereince, air bubbles will not harm you with intramuscular injection.

it takes quite a bit of air directly into a vein to hurt you......the small bubble will just come out in a fart later!!!

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure. It's been quite frustrating avoiding them when aspirating. glad to know not to worry :winkfinger:

When I started hrt my doctor told me to leave a small sized air bubble in the barrel of the syringe. She explained this would in a sence 'pack' the oil into the muscle so little to none would weep out of the injection site. Its fairly effective and it hasn't killed me yet.

If air bubbles were harmful, I'd be long dead.

I pinned a big air bubble yesterday, it made a slurping sound. That shit isn't anything to be concerned about. Now air bubbles while doing dick shots? That sir is the bees knees!

A little bit of air is fine. No worries.

No air bubbles are for Arteries and veins because they could cause a blockage to the heart or brain by causing the blood to clot. It would probably still need to be a descent size one.

I like to leave a little bubble to help push the extra gear out. Plus it sounds cool.

You would have to inject over 1cc straight into your vein (bloodstream) to be harmful. Since you are not injecting into your veins you have no worrys!
