Well, as a slightly less new pumper (2 months!), I think you get faster
with practice. Took me 11 minutes yesterday!!!  :)

But that brings to mind a question: Why do they tell you to prime 5
units after you've filled the tubing? (My CDE told me the same thing) I
understand the .5 to fill the cannula, but I don't understand the 5 when
the tubing is already full.
