Re: [IP] saline solution?



It is really not 'Rocket Science' While my pump, MM511, was on order I went
for the carb counting bit of 2 days , I got my pump on 9/3/03 and started
pumping insulin on 9/4/03.  never did the saline.  The CDE calculated my
basal rates, we programmed the pump etc and away I went!!!
