Hi all! My 5 year old son has been on an Animas PING for exactly one year now. Throughout this first year, we have had problems with keeping air bubbles OUT of the cartridge and tubing. When I change his site, say if I change it on wednesday, by the next site change day on Friday, I find air bubbles in the cartridge, and or tubing even though when I changed it on that said wednesday, there were NO air bubbles anywhere to be found in that cartridge or tubing. Its like they just magically appear! I’ve spoke to our local Animas rep about it and she adviced we tighten the cap connecting the tubing to the cartidge more than what the instructions state, which we have tried and still do, however we are still finding that air somehow still seeps in from somewhere, causing air bubbles in the tubing and/or cartridge!
Anyone have any tips or tricks on what I can do to prevent this from happening? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
