RE: [IP] remembering to prime out air bubbles



Hi Yessi,

Disconnect, remove reservoir from pump, rewind pump, use plunger
to withdraw all insulin (and air) from tubing into reservoir, add
a nice fat air bubble. Stand reservoir vertically on plunger
handle, wait a few minutes until the bubbles have merged into one
big bubble, carefully push bubble into tubing. Now prime as usual.
Reminder: Do not apply fixed prime unless you changed the cannula,
too.

Cheers,
Felix.
