I started training on my T Slim yesterday and my trainer mentioned never to disconnect the tubing from the lock end as the insulin in the tubing could then be infused and overdose you. She said to always disconnect first from the inset. It seems straightforward but there are situations where this could happen which is worrisome.
I'm wondering this:
1- how much insulin is in the tubing at any given time?
2- how quickly could it be dosed if this were to happen?
I assume it's possible for this to happen:
1- by accident if you forget
2- by accident while you are sleeping or if the tubing/pump gets caught on something
3- by accident if you have an accident such as a car accident
In which case you not know it had happened and you may not be able to do anything about it possibly even if you did.
This doesn't seem very safe to me for this to be able to happen at all.
Were you all told the same thing when you trained?
