    despite all these answers, a tiny air bubble in the vein will do nothing, its on the venous side, so it wont get into the coronaries (heart attack) or the brain (stroke)--that comes from the left heart. Tiny amounts of air get into veins during surgeries at times, wounds, etc.  TV is not reality.

    ANY amount of air can BLOCK bloodflow somewhere downstream of where you inject it, and cause tissue to die

    mm of air? air is not measured that way.

    mL ? that is a lot, you will probably die.

    An air bubble can travel to the heart and cause a heart attack, or it can travel to the brain and cause a stroke.

    That's an embolism.  You might live, but you probably won't.

    Millimeter is a unit of distance, you can't inject it.

    This question makes no sense. Air is 3-dimensional, but distance (millimeter) is a two dimensional quantity. Your question is like saying "How much power can a battery store?" It is an unanswerable question.

    You could get a heart attack, stroke, or respiratory failure.
