Depends: This depends where exactly the air is. In some cases the air can be removed. In others the care is supportive.

Hyperbaric Chamber: The use of 100% oxygen, breathed under increased atmospheric pressure in a hyperbaric chamber, is commonly used to treat air-embolism. This is especially true for those emboli that impair circulation to the nervous system/brain.
