Re: [IPk] blocked Cleo 90s
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.
