What do you do to prevent air bubbles in the syringe? When you pull air in the syringe to inject into the bottle, do you push the air into air space inside the bottle or do you push the air into the insuln. Do you do this while the bottle is sitting upright or upside down? Do you draw out extra insulin? Everyone does things differently and I wonder what steps you use to prevent air bubbles. I think I injected a bunch of air into the Pod tonight. Blood sugar before pod change was 91 and 107 after. Carolina cried tonight for the first time with a pod change and when I looked at the canula it was full of blood. Bolused her for a meal and gave 3.4u, blood did not clear but I saw it move. One and a half hours later 299 and went up more the next 15 mins. I was determined to get a good look at the canula of the deactivated pod and the new pod. This is quite a challange for me because I wear glasses for reading. Here I am with a flash light, a magnifying glass, and the strongest pair of reading glasses I have. I inspect them both for a long time. The new pod has a bunch and I mean a whole bunch of air bubbles that I can watch over time move down the canula into the skin. The old pod has no air bubbles. Blood sugar is now 211 and coming down, but I really messed up tonight and hope knowing how others draw up insulin can prevent this from happening. I am still seeing air bubbles.
