Re: [IP] Need your help again

I'm a little confusedby this discussion: when I refill a reservoir without
changing sites, I first DISCONNECT, then suck all the insulin back through
the tubing, refill the res. and then prime the tubing again manually,
inspecting for bubbles. Basically,  just what I do for a new tubing. I have
not noticed any problems with bubbles -- and it means I can refill or
replace reservoir whenever necessary without regard to when I put in a new
set, and I don't waste insulin, either.
