I feel ok at the moment

OK Gavin. First off you'd have to inject a lot of air--at least 60cc--into a vein to cause an air embolism in the heart that could be fatal and if that had happened, we wouldn't be talking right now. As for whether it might have not been a clean needle, since there's no way we can tell, I'd screen you now and in three months for HIV and hepatitis B and C and I would give you prophylactic antiviral treatment now for HIV.
