RE: [IP] Help! air bubbles in Inset Infusion Sets

One addition--orient the pump while doing this so that the end of the 
reservoir that the tubing comes from is at the top.  Having the line 
straight is not nearly as important as having the needle well above 
the pump.  If done right, this takes the place of using the plunger 
to purge air bubbles from the line.
