Re: [IPk] Re: [IP] visual impairment and pumping (fwd)

Sorry folks - never heard of it.

When the prime infusion set function operates on the H-TROn 20 units of
insulin is pushed through the tube.  It is not easy to see this even with
good visin but if you leave the needle lying on the skin you can feel the
insulin wetting it - once this happens you know you are getting insulin -
you may still have air in the cartridge  however - di you need to see Rita
our CSII Nurse Trainer.  If you want to meet up give me your contact number
and she will meet up with you.  We are meeting the nurse from Manchester at
the BDA in Glasgow next week

Best wishes

John H
