The bubble won't hurt anything.  Usually it will just sit there 
because, if not broken up, it is to large to enter the infusion line. 
If it does manage to enter the infusion line, the QR can be opened 
and the bubble can be bolused out (when it reaches the QR).

Remember 1/2 unit per inch of infusion line.
