Re: [IP] bubble in tubing

Hey Anna over in Seattle.  We are over in Poulsbo, on the peninsula.  
Depending on how big the bubble is you may not have to worry about it.  If 
the bubble is a really good size, oh, say a good 1/2 inch in the tube, then 
you will want to prime it out.  If it is just a tiny little thing you really 
shouldn't have to worry about it too much.  You won't be missing that much 
insulin.  It doesn't take awhile to get good at getting all the buibbles out. 
 Make sure that you are using insulin that is at room temperature.  Cold 
insulin in the cartridge will have a tendency to develop bubbles as it warms 
up next to your body!

Good Luck!
