How much air in syringe needed to kill a person when injected to his vein?
I hope that you are not planning to murder someone, and that you are asking this question only out of curiosity. Any visible bubble could potentially cause an embolism, although there is no guaranteee that any given embolism will be fatal. The more air you inject, the greater the chance of fatality.

Asked in The Difference Between
What is the difference between an embolus and embolism?
An embolus is a physical mass (fat, air, blood clot, etc) which can travel to a different location in the arteries. An embolism is when an embolus actually blocks a capillary. A thrombus is a physical mass which remains attached to it's site of origin. A thrombus may detach to become a thrombo-embolus which may then cause an embolism.

Yes, there are several risks that can occur from this, one of the major ones is the possibility of rupturing something internally, which might end up leading to getting an air embolism. What is Air Embolsim? An air embolism, or more generally gas embolism, is a pathological condition caused by gas bubbles in a vascular system. The most common context is a human body, in which case it refers to gas bubbles in the bloodstream (embolism in a medical context refers to any large moving mass or defect in the blood stream). - Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_embolism)

Asked in Surgery and Hospitalization
Why might it be dangerous if air bubbles get into patients blood?
Although incredibly rare an air bubble could be introduced to a patients blood during an IV infusion. This would be called an air embolism, as all veins travel back to the heart, this could in turn cause the blood flow to the heart to be blocked and cause a heart attack. Healthcare professional are highly skilled in administering IV's and ensure that infusions are free from air bubbles.
Pathogens that are transmitted through the air cause what?
What happens to the patient when air is administered during an injection of medication?
Injection of air into the bloodstream is a fairly common and benign occurrence. During I.V. infusion, direct administration of medications through an I.V. site, or flushing of catheters with saline, small air bubbles are often pushed into the bloodstream. Despite the common misconception of instant death, under most circumstances the body can simply absorb these bubbles with little or no difficulty or adverse effect. However, injection of more than a little air all at once can cause a pulmonary embolism, which is very serious indeed. (According to a nurse's forum post, Medline's estimate for the amount of air necessary to cause venous air embolism is 3-8cc/kg. see associated linkage)
