Re: [IP] Love that 'Dual Wave' Minimed 507C

The MiniMed 507c has 2 extened bolus formats, the Square wave, which puts out
a bolus rate evenly spaced over a given period of time (defined by user), and
the Dual Wave, which is a combination of the normal immediate bolus plus a 
Square Wave.

So, if you're eating a mixed meal with a lot of carbs and fats you need an
immediate bolus to cover the carbs and a slower longer bolus to cover the fats,
which is exactly what the Dual Wave is for.
