[IPk] air bubbles



Barbara
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)
