[IP] Re: using air to pump insulin

PJB, a clever idea in emergency situations.  I could used this last week.
Subcutaneous air will cause no problems.  It will get dissolved into the
blood and ventilated  out the lungs very quickly.

<<<<<<<.  I thought air
bubbles pose little risk of doing damage, escpecially subcutaneously.  Of
course, they will mix up the amount of insulin actually going in.

Has anyone else ever done this????? Or anything else that could be
considered a desparate measure for temporary comfort (or survival)?????
