RE: [IP] Re: oops with that damn bolus...



Janine,

I don't know how long you have been pumping.  It has been almost 4 days now
for me, and I am still getting used to fractions of units, so I check,
re-check and then go back and look again.  I find the MM508 is easy to use,
but I know that if you are not totally alert it could be hard.  When we took
the pump class, they hooked us up to the pumps with saline and we had to
bolus every time we gave a shot of H, so we could get used to it.

Good luck with keeping it straight.  I had the police and paramedics here a
few months ago due to a severe low (pre-pump, of course), and I know it was
no fun!

did anyone out there ever totally mess up a bolus?  i hit in 8 rather than
.8
when my sugar was 102 (was trying to prime, oh well...) and had to give
myself
glucagon while the police watched.  i couldn't wait for the EMTs since they
took 15 minutes.  i couldn't for the life of me get the Minimed508 to
suspend.  maybe that was total panic, since i live alone & felt so faint.
yikes. i felt so dumb.
i'm sure i'm not the only one who always seems to be doing three things at
once and, like this time, screws up.  maybe i am.  i'll tell you one thing:
i focus so much more, now!
