Insulin Drip - Adsorption

Hi Everyone,

There are a lot of different practices I'm seeing out there for management of insulin drip adsorption.

1. Let it dwell?

2. 20 ML priming flush?

3. No safeguard as it's being used with a carefully monitored titration protocol?

4. Other ideas?

We are currently exploring the idea of a flush, but are curious to hear from others.
