What is the max allowed amount of air?When the contents from vials are injected these are taken up using a syringe, and prior injection the syringe is de-airated. Pre-filled syringes do contain a small amount of air and I wander if the air must be removed prior injection, and what the maximum allowed amount of air is for s.c. and i.m. injections. Are there any literature references available ?
Do prefilled syringes need de-airation prior to injection?

If its only a tiny amount, the bubble actually helps get all the medicine in. A small amount isn't going to hurt. The big danger with air bubbles is if you're filling the syringe and the space the air takes up decreases the amount of medication.
