Re: [IPk] blocked Cleo 90s

Hi Diana,

Thanks for your reply. It's definitely a tubing problem. When disconnected I 
tried to prime and it alarmed straight away. I connected new tubing and 
reconnected the old site (removed from Tim) and primed this and the insulin 
came straight through.
I hadn't thought about it being a cartridge problem. I always lubricate well 
before use! When using the Inset IIs we haven't had any problems so it looks 
like we'll have to go back to them. It's a shame 'cos we both like the 
Cleo's and they are the only set that Tim can do himself.

Thanks again,
Kirsten, mum to Tim aged 7, dx Oct 2003, Cozmo Dec 2005
