    I am trying first time Sure T pricking for my daughter, but cannot find how much if any I have to prime once I do the pricking. in the Quick set, we used to alwasys add 0,3 because of pulling needle, but since here you do not pull anything out, I am not sure

    You don't need to prime the metal cannula.
    Just make sure to manually prime the whole thing (including the pigtail) before inserting. You want to be sure you see insulin coming out of the metal cannula. Then insert it. Press ESC on the pump to skip the fixed prime step.

    Hope that helps :cwds:

    I set the prime amount to zero on my pump so it never can prime even if I have a "spacey" moment. Just set it and never change it. I still always skip the prime step but just set it to zero out of caution.ali
