RE: [IP] air bubbles

There is a whole lot in the archives about air bubbles in reservoir and
getting into tubing.

Make sure your insulin is at room temp. Make sure you turn and move plunger
up and down and around several times before you put the insulin in it.  Draw
up air first then put in bottle and push plunger all the way up.  Let the
plunger go down filling reservoir and when it stops, tap the reservoir and
get all the bubbles to the top and out.

I have found, thanks to our professor in here, that if I fill the reservoir
and stand it up for about a half hour to an hour and then tap all the
remaining little bubbles out, I don't have any huge bubbles at all...not
even little ones...

Hope this helps and check archives as well.
