"Yes Rick, I do that routine. I also toggle between 7000 ft ele and sea level, which never mattered. Imho it was the 35,000 ft flights over and over that I can only think caused problems with my open vial."

"Thanks so much for caring and helping me get this thing right. Yes, I do go thru the fill, push out bubbles, fill, tap out bubbles routine. And I've done well for the first 6 mos of my pump life, I only got into bubble land on my trip and…"

"i live where at 3300 ft and then travel to the other side of the state where its sea level. it causes bubbles sometimes but when you make your reservoir dont you push the insulin back and forth into the bottle and out of the bottle to remove air? i…"

"I'm glad you came up with a probable answer to your bubble problem. I don't know what technique you use to fill your cartridge, but we treat my son's the same as if we were preparing an injection, i.e. fill the cartride, flick to get…"

"RESOLUTION!After multiple attempts to fill the reservoir carefully without bubbles remaining, I was about to tear my hair out and throw the pump away when a lightbulb went off. The insulin vials I was using had been flying with me up and down on six…"

AustinMom replied to Cindy's discussion 'bubbles'
"My son uses the Ping, so the function might be different than for the Medtronic. For his pump, we would go to the priming function that he uses when we do a site/cartridge change. I'm not certain, but I don't think this would affect IOB…"

Cindy replied to Cindy's discussion 'bubbles'
"Thanks, when you say 'prime it out', I don't know if you mean the bolus function or the set up function. If I use the bolus function, wouldn't that screw up my insulin on board for further calculations?"
