[IP] Minimed reservoirs and sof-set Ultimate Qr - problems- long
Looks like I have a box of bad leak reservoirs which may have cause my
unexplain highs a few weeks ago. So far I returned 2 to Minimed and one I
threw out because I though I may have overtighten the needle which cause it
to crack at the neck of the reservoir where the needle or the set connects.
Today another one - it looks like I've been wasting over 50 units of insulin
priming and trying to get a working reservoir. It doesn't leak much but
when I prime a whole 5 units and reprime again the insulin would take a
while before it comes back out so I check the neck of the reservoir its wet.
I have about 5 more reservoir in the same box - and got a new shipment and
hopefully those are ok. I only notice the leak after I reprime to make sure
the insulin comes out again and thats when I've notice theres something
wrong - I usually prime once and the insert - reason for high BS and BS
would come down a little with only a high bolus.
Another thing I've noticed recently while primimg is sometimes there's a
nice size air bubble at the quick release area while priming and I would
have to always have to flick the quick release to get the bubble out.
Sometimes the bubble is at least and inch to 2 inches long when it goes into
the tubing - reason for a high BS reading when the bubble goes into tubing.
So now I am priming anywhere from 8 - 15 units of insulin for leaks and air
Now at the rate I'm going I will need a new script for more insulin.
