[IP] Re: Occlusion

Actually, I am more than happy with the "high" setting.  Setting it on 
"high" means that the tiniest disruption should be noticed by the pump. 
It was just funny, as I mentioned earlier today, to have it "happen" 
when I had just read about it in IP.

A couple of weeks ago I had my first experience in 5 years of pumping 
with a new site that never made it "in."  In an hour my blood sugar was 
in the 200's---there was no reason for that so I was surprised but 
tried bolusing more.  In another half-hour I was in the 300's and in 
another half hour, when I found the pool of insulin under the tape and 
started over, I reached the 400's.   I use very small amounts of 
insulin so it was fascinating to see what happens in a very short 
period of time for me when there is no insulin on board.  In one sense 
it was a great education for me to see what the pump really and truly 
means, for me, in terms of insulin delivery. I never before truly 
realized how fast something can happen.  And that means, if there is a 
true occlusion, I need to know right away--so I use the High setting. A 
software problem, of course, is an entirely different matter.

Maybe that is contributing to some of the occlusion problems in the
newer IR1200 pump. Sorry, I should have
made my post more clear.
