Some advice about air bubbles

Results of a user's survey about air bubbles in pumps

On this page, we include two surveys conducted by one of our members, who takes a look at the problem of air bubbles in the tubing, among users of the various different pumps available. Her aim is to investigate if there is any particular correlation with the type of pump and the incidence of air bubbles. She also gives some useful tips on how to avoid air bubbles.

The surveys and tips are available as pdf files below.

Insulin Pumpers and Insulin Pumpers UK are supported financially by voluntary contributions from members of its discussion groups and from all the principal insulin pump manufacturers.
