Re: [IP] Minimed Paradigm Pump



What I do to get 172 units in my Paradigm is to fill the reservoir, remove 
the reservoir from the blue top and not take the plunger off and connect the 
 reservoir to the tubing and manually fill up the tubing and then disconnect the
reservoir from the tubing and back to the insulin bottle, refilling what I put 
in the tubing and pulling the plunger to the bottom until the black O-ring 
 shows from the bottom of the reservoir. I don't really know if this makes
sense,
but that is what I do and I get 172 units (I have found that it is actually 
 about 10-15 units more by letting the pump go past the 0 units remaining and it
goes about another 10-15 before it is completely out of insulin).  Again, 
 sorry if this doesn't make sense, if you are really confused, e-mail me and I
can
try and better explain myself.
