[IPk] air bubbles

air bubbles injected under the skin are not harmful in themselves( it would
have to be very large and injected intravenously to be dangerous in itself)
however, on a pump as you are receiving small quantities of insulin  an air
bubble can result in missing a significant amount and a rapid rise in BG ( I
suppose if BG was not checked frequently or corrective action not taken, it
could lead to DKA)
