Injected air in PIO needle!


#1

I just did my PIO injection and forgot to clear the air from the needle first. Anyone know how dangerous this is? I also didn’t check to make sure I didn’t hit a vein.

well, it’s dangerous if you are in the vein (bloodstream), but obviously you are still alive, so you are fine!! Nothing to worry about.

LOL…yep still here! Thanks! I’ll be more careful in the future.

FWIW, I’m told that it’s actually pretty unlikely that you would hit directly into a vein - I forget to pull back and check all the time and I’ve never had an issue. Glad it worked out OK for you! :slight_smile:
