Due to the Medtronics Quickset recall I have a situation that I haven’t had to deal with before. I had to change infusion sets yesterday before the new sets arrived and all of my sets are on the recall list. So right now I have a reservoir with a little over 250 units of insulin in it and I need to change sets (with one of the new ones they sent me). My pump educator had told me that if I ever need to change sets I must also change reservoirs. I’d hate wasting 250 units of insulin though, but since I have to change sets I was thinking of just hooking up the new set to the already in use reservoir. I would obviously have to make sure that I rewound, primed, and then fixed primed it again but I’m wondering why I’m not allowed doing this, or if you think that I actually can do it?
I’d ask my pump educator, but she informed a few days ago she will be on vacation and away from phones and email.
What do you think?
