Amount?: Remember that the veins are carrying oxygen-poor blood back to the lungs. Small amounts of air are quickly incorporated into the de-oxygenated hemoglobin which is "oxygen hungry".

Cruel to be kind: I don't mean to sound like a terribly mean doctor but I have not yet met a child in the emergency department we were not able to coerce into taking their medication.
