Small air bubbles and subcutaneous injection

Dulaglutide should be injected subcutaneously under the skin into the fat tissue layer (subcutaneous injection).1

Small air bubbles are not a problem in this type of injection.2

Injecting air bubbles is more of a safety concern when medicines need to be injected into a vein (intravenous administration).2
