Do we die when we inject air into viens using syringe?

Do we die when we inject air into viens using syringe?

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". Air in the veins is generally well tolerated. It is not tolerated at all when injected into an artery. Even a tiny amount results in "air embolism" which paradoxically deprives served tissues of oxygen carried by blood. ...Read more

Odds of brain eating amoeba inf from neti pot using brita pitcher water?

Odds of brain eating amoeba inf from neti pot using brita pitcher water?

Not likely: This actually is an interesting question. There are no guarantees in life and you could get an amoeba at any time. However, it would be really unlikely with first potable and then filtered water. I would assume you are using clean municipal water and then extra filtering it with Brita. So, the risk is low, but there are just no guarantees: nothing in medicine is ever 100% ...Read more
