We went to the pump start class today. Sort of. We have the Animas Ping and it's really easy to use, in my opinion. Yet, they want us to do a dry run with saline solution for a week. I protested, but to no avail. If I haven't killed him with MDI, I won't kill him with a pump that has way more safeguards. Is the practice of a dry run with saline common? It's a PITA, IMHO.
