If you are given an injection which has oxygen in it, could the air bubble get to the heart and stop it?
NO: Air that is absorbed into the circulation (or directly injected into a vein) is absorbed by oxygen poor hemoglobin returning to the lungs & is harmless.

Arteriole pressure usually prevents the solution from entering, but if it does, a small wound ("cutaneous necrosis") may occur which heals very slowly. Good technique lowers this risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
