Re: [IP] EXPIRED INFUSION SETS?????



Mel,

  I may be wrong on this but I don't think the tubing is lubricated.  The 
lubrication in the cartridge is for the plunget.  Those 2 o rings at the 
end...those seal the cartridge so that the insulin does not get pushed out 
that end.  So the lub is for those orings basically.  Yes, sliding the 
plunger up and down is ALWAYS a good thing to do before filling to move that 
lub around.
