Also, if you use the SofSet, you must flush the canula after 
injecting the insulin. The tube between the QR fitting and the end of 
the set contains 2.5u of fluid. For example, injecting a unit of 
insulin would leave the insulin entirely in the tube. Always flush 
the sofset with and additional saline bolus of 2.5 units to push in 
the injected insulin. Likewise, for a Tender/Silohette/Comfort set, 
bolus 0.8u of saline to flush the volume of the set.
