RE: Subject: [IP] Behavior modification



Only the MM508 has this feature and you put the amount of insulin in the
cartridge when you prime the new cartridge.  You can also set it later by
going to the prime screen ACT on 0.0 and then use the up and down arrows to
give the approx. number of what is left in the cartridge.  The pump then
beeps 3 times when it hits 20u and if it is during a bolus it then does it
again when it is finished.  You have to press SEL to get rid of the screen.
It then alarms again at 10u in the same manner.

If you didn't put in the amount of insulin or it was a little higher then
what it really was it wouldn't have alarmed yet at 20u.  You can check by
hitting the ACT button on the date screen it will show the current amount.

Hope that helps,
Sherry

now what gets me is,

few days ago geneva started having high numbers and her bolus didn't seem to
be doing a very good job of correcting.
we looked at cartridge and it was down around the 20 line/ maybe closer to
empty.

no alarms went off.

when does the alarm go off?  I suppose i should haul out the MM manual and
check.  but too lazy. you guys are just too easy to ask.
