[IP] Trick from Camp

Learned a trick at camp.

This is not advised by the medical professionals!!!!

If you have run out of insulin and don't have any more, you can use what is
in the tubing.  Just take out the syringe and disconnect the tubing.  Pull a
small amount of air into the cylinder (10-20U) and replace the tubing.
Prime the pump until the drops form and reconnect.  The tubing holds several
units and this could get you back to an insulin vial without DKA.

Don't put too much air in, as then all the insulin may pour back into the

I hope you never have to try this.  And remember, it is not advised by you
doctor.  I am sure that you never do anything that is not advised by you
