[IP] The occulsion threshold for Animas pump

Most pumps decide that there is an occlusion if the motor has to work harder
than normal to force the insulin in. under these circumstances, the motor
draws more current than it did over the last several attemps to pump and
then the comparison circuitry in the pump signals occlusion. It is not by
units but rather rotational force of  the motor per stroke. I guess this
could be eventually quantitated in units but who cares. All the FDA approved
pumps know when occlusion occurs. spot
