Re: [IP] air bubbles

Response from Mike Kurtis (Suffern, NY - a neighbor from Temple BethEl,
Spring Valley) email @ redacted

Did you see you got into Diabetes Interview. They used your comments on
meters in the Feb 2003 issue. Thats where I saw you were nearby. I don't
have the same pump as you. I have had the minimed 508 and since Oct, have
been on the Paradigm. The best I can offer is since air rises in water and
other liquids, make sure you have the neck on your insulin vial upside down
when extracting the insulin. If it is going directly into the pump
reservoir, tap the reservoir to remove small bubles adheared to the vial,
push out all the air from the reservoir into the vial (above and upside
down) a few times. That always works for me. Tapping might require
something solid such as the glucagon red case or the handle on your
silverware. Good luck.
