Re: [IP] priming

She isn't priming with the tubing connected, is she????  

To fill the tubing, of course, the longer tubing takes more insulin, but
that should be done before connecting. Then there's the prime to make
sure there's enough "pressure head" (I'm not sure of the proper term!),
and THEN you connect and prime the cannula. 

The cannula prime should be the same.

If she did the priming correctly, the low would probably be coincidence.
