[IP] Units in Reservoir

<The pump subtracts about 20u so you'll have a small reserve. Try
it -- use a reservoir until it shows "0.0u" for the remaining
units in the status screen. Then do a nice, fat, bolus or two
(into the air, not into your daughter) of ten units each and see
how much insulin you can deliver before you get the "no delivery"
alarm. For me (MM 722), that amounts to ~20u.>

If you try to give a bolus on an Animas pump when the pump shows 0.00 - you
don't get anything.  If your pump shows 3 units remaining and you try to give
a bolus for 4 units - it will alarm right back at you!  :-)
YMMV
