RE: [IPk] Re: bubbles bubbles bubbles!!!

Hi Nanette

 We have a Medtronic 712, fill the reservoirs once for every two set changes. We
keep the opened vial in the fridge (very warm in our house) take the vial out a
few hours before a set change. Inject air into the vial before filling up.  I
cant remember the last time we had a bubble problem.

I cant imagine that its down to a pump itself and of course also many people
have a Minimed or Roche/Disetronic pump anyway as they have been to ones
available the longest in the UK and only a few have cozmos or Animas pumps.  On
the USA CWD parents list the bubble problem seems to effect all different makes
of pump equally.   I can say I ever notice parent mentioning bubble problems
much on the US parents support list.
