I am Diabetic. Here’s how it works. My insulin pump and continuous glucose meter (CGM).

September 10, 2019

>>SCOTT: I only get to do this YouTube video
in one take so I hope you’ll bear with me. So, as a diabetic, when I eat my blood sugar
goes up, when I take insulin, my blood sugar goes down. It’s kind of like flying a plane and adjusting
the altitude. Eat it goes up, insulin it goes down. So I try to “fly” nice and steady, so I don’t
crash into the ground, and I don’t float away. Typically I use a needle to give myself that
insulin. My body doesn’t produce any insulin. My pancreas doesn’t work. I can give myself a shot here and there, but at some point I’m gonna be giving myself
8 to 10 shots. So I use what’s called an insulin pump. And my insulin pump sits right here. It sits
on my belt. It’s got a little bunch of insulin right there, a big long tube, and it’s plugged into me. It’s plugged into me all the time. See these bruises? That’s because I’m putting
holes in myself faster than I can heal them. When the insulin pump runs out, like it did
tonight, I have to fill it up. So here’s what I do when I change my insulin
pump. I take this off. This is a little port. Pull
this off me. Now I’ve got a hole in me. That’s the little needle – it’s called a “cannula”
– that was sticking in me. That’s where the insulin came out. Throw that
away. Then I’m going to take the insulin pump, pull
out the tubing, this is disposable; this goes away. Now I’ve got an empty insulin pump. I’m gonna tell this pump to rewind and get
ready for a new bunch of insulin. See that “screw drive” that’s moving backwards
right there? That’s the plunger. That’s rewinding. You
can hear it. While that’s rewinding, I’ll take a fresh
“reservoir” and a bunch of insulin. Push air into it. Now I’m pulling it out,
filling up the reservoir with insulin. I do this every three days. Insulin is measured in “units.” I give myself
about 30 units a day. Disconnect it, insulin goes away, now I’ve
got a reservoir full of insulin. Now I take this, this is also disposable.
I have to buy these. This is pretty expensive. This is that tubing, it’s a fresh one. Plug the reservoir into the tubing. I’ll take this and put it inside the pump, Take that and put it inside the pump and tell
the pump that I’ve got some. And it’s going to start to push. And It’s filling up the tube. See that? See the insulin dropping out? I’ll put the pump down temporarily. Take this thing here and I’m going put it
inside this. This a little plunger and I’m gonna put this
on top if it. This is a little sticker. I’ll pull the sticker
off. See that blue thing on top, there’s a needle
under there. Push it down into the plunger, pull that off;
needle’s in there. Use my arm. [INHALES, EXHALES SHARPLY. SNAP!]>>SCOTT: Now it’s plugged in me. Pull out
the needle, that’s the needle. Remember that one we threw away earlier? This little plastic tube is in there. So now, the pump is plugged into the tube
which is plugged into me. I wear it 24 hours a day. I wear it when I
sleep, I put it underneath my pillow. Clip it onto my belt. 24 hours a day. The only time I take it off is for a few minutes
when I shower. So this is easier than shots. And now I can do little tiny adjustments to
my “plane” that’s flying. Unfortunately though, pump are expensive. A lot of people who don’t live in Western
Countries can’t get ahold of pumps. There’s a lot of money here, These are a couple
thousand bucks. They’re usually paid for by insurance but
you’ll usually have to fight your insurance company to get one. So that’s thing number one. Every three days, I do this maneuver that
we just did. Every three days. I’ll take the pump, put it in my pocket. Thing number two, I’m going to put in a Continuous
Glucose Meter. Sometimes you hear about diabetic who prick
their finger. They look at the blood on their finger and
they measure it and that tells you what your blood sugar is. It’s like looking at your altimeter on an
airplane, seeing what your altitude. But there are things called Continuous Glucose
Meters that allow you to get that information more often. I prick my finger between 8 and 10 times a
day. I’ve got black marks and calluses on my finger
from doing this for 15 years. This is a sensor, these are expensive, again,
fighting with the insurance to get these things. This going to allow me to check my blood sugar
every 5 minutes. This sensor – looks kind of like a mosquito
– has a sticker and a needle. You’ll notice that one of the thigns about
diabetes is that there’s a lot of needles… and it sucks. This is another one of those “inserter” deals. [SNAP] [POP]>>SCOTT: OK? Take that… and put this inside it. The little mosquito
deal. You’ll find yourself as a diabetic finding
new and creative ways to stick yourself. And the irony is, you have to hurt yourself
all the time while you’re diabetic, so you can avoid hurting yourself later when
you’re old and things are going bad. Pull the little sticker off. See that, right
there? Pull the plastic off this needle. OK? So that needle is now going to go in me. And this is where some of the, more of the,
fat belly stuff is going to happen. Forgive me. I’m working out, but whadayagonnado? Again this may look bruised, like there’s
holes and stuff, it’s because I’m putting holes in me faster than I can
heal them. I’m going to take this needle… …looking for a place where I can sense… [INHALES]>>SCOTT: You’ll hear me breathing because
it hurts. [INHALES, EXHALES, POP!]>>SCOTT: OK. Pull the sticker, now that’s
sticking in me. Pull it out. [EXHALES]>>SCOTT: There’s your needle. OK, now, that
left the sensor in me. Now, I take a battery. This battery is sitting
on a charger. This is from a company called Minimed, see
it’s blinking. Put that sensor right here. [CLICK]>>SCOTT: Just plugged it in. Now I’ll take
some “second skin.” This is a, it’s kind of a clear sticker. I’ll take this clear sticker and stick it over here. I do this about every 36 hours. They’re waterproof, so I can leave that on
now for a while. So that guy’s sitting there. This senses my blood sugar. K, that sips, sips the interstitial fluids… Not the blood, but the interstitial fluids and then sends the results to this pump. Then I have to use my brain sometimes Microsoft Excel to figure out how much insulin to give myself. Then I tell the pump [4 SLOW BEEPS] That I want to give myself 2 units [4 FAST ESCALATING BEEPS] It says are you sure 2 units? and I say, yep,
I’m sure. And now it’s delivering. So very, very slowly, that little plunger
that we saw before is turning and it’s delivering insulin. It’s going all the way through this tube,
into here. This gives me information that I use to drive
this. Now, the fun part. Every 43 days, this is
all the medical waste now. Needles, gotta put this in a “sharps” container. We changed the pump, we changed the tubing,
we changed the reservoir… We changed the needles for the continuous
meter. I use a hundred and something units of insulin. So here’s the part that freaks me out and
here’s why I’m doing this video in the first place. I’m 36 years old and I can handle this. I didn’t say that it was fun, but I can handle
this. But imagine if you were seven, or 9 months
old, or 3. And you had to do something like this. Whether it’s pricking your finger 10 times
a day and taking shots, or a whole bunch of tubing and wires. 24 hours
a day. We do it because we want to live. We do it because we want to live for our kids
and to be around for a long time. But it’s no fun. And I would encourage you if you can, if you
know someone with diabetes, if you have someone you love who has diabetes. Please give money. I’m personally raising
money for the American Diabetes Association. Hanselman.com slash fightdiabetes I’m going to put a link at the bottom of this
video right here. You can read my story and hopefully start
learning a little about diabetes and I hope that this YouTube video helped you
out because it hurt me a little bit. Thanks a lot!

  1. Scott,
    I see my diabetic clinic doctor tomorrow to see if they'll be able to get me setup
    just like in your wonderful video. It answers my numerous questions!
    I've been on insulin since 1968(45 years) when boiling a glass syringe along with a rarely replaced stainless steel needle was normal.
    For glucose levels, using your urine sample in a tiny test tube with a bubbling tablet before meals was the norm.
    That was everyday and many times a day
    Glad there's this better method: COUNT ME IN.

  2. Scott – I first started following you because I'm a developer. Then I was diagnosed with type 2 and started to see you posting your insights about your type 1. This video was an eye opening shock. I was just prescribed insulin because the oral drugs have started to lose their effectiveness. Thank you for sharing what you go through – it helps.

  3. hi, my wife is diabetic tipe 1 for 35 years…..this is good way for her..she feel tire about needles…thanks for share this valuable informations…we already call to medtronic for pricing…the cost is $ 6,000, and we don't have medical insurance…do you know any way to get this at low price? with out insurance…..thanks

  4. Thanks for the video I my name is Felix and im 12 years old and I have diabetes TYPE 1 , and i alsohave a pump , ANIMAS wave . 😉

  5. thank you for this video. i was diagnosed at the start of this year and i am currently waiting for my pump to arrive in the mail

  6. I feel for people with Type 1. They never asked for it and yet that's there life. Me I'm type 2 and well Type 1s know that and other type 2s know how that happens. I did not eat right and that's why I have Type 2 thing is I can change what I do. I don't like seeing teens with Type 1 and pray and hope there will one day be a cure for those people with Type 1.

  7. hello Scott ive been a diabetic now for 5 years (type 1) im very interested in getting the pump u have with the CGM i have been extremely sick for the past few weeks and its beggining to have negative affects on my employment and my personal lifeso im looking for other options then what i am currently doing
    i was wondering if you would be willing to exchange emails and could possibly ask you some questions my email is [email protected] i look forward to hearing from you

  8. Type 1 diabetes is actually caused by the consumption of dairy products in the early stages of life. that's why dairy needs to be exposed for the poison it is and make people aware that milk is not natures perfect food nor any of its byproducts

  9. Hi my name is kayla, I am a type 1 diabetic I was diagnosed when I was 9 months old I was the second youngest child to be diagnosed in my hospital.. I'm now 15 years old almost 16 things are tough right now and you inspire me I am already on medication for a failing kidney and neuropathy in my feet. My A1C levels are quite high at the moment they are at 12.9 I am working hard now to improve this thank you for this video it has really inspired me to change my habits!!! With love, kayla….

  10. This video is great. I'm 14 and was diagnosed with type one last year with type one. Sucks but I have to do it and I want to if it means that I stay alive and well.

  11. You can use diabno for type 1 & 2 diabetes reversal. Check online for "Diabno" to get details as it helps your body naturally reproduce insulin…

  12. The Omnipod has smaller needles from what I can see from this video. Also, no tubing. It is what I use.

    Definitely check it out!!!

  13. i had diabetic since 6 years old now im 23….. i have diabetic type 2….i am from indonesia… i just wanna ask about the insulin pump how much it cost there? and the blood checking works?

  14. A supplement from third world countries is known to help diabetes – "moringa". A relative of mine suffered leukemia and is recovering from drinking this as tea. May be different for your diabetes but worth checking out. Moringaleaves.blogspot.com

  15. Hi i have a 4 year old son Name Anthony he will be 5 in DEC 4. and hes gonna get started on the pump we spoke to his endo and we have all dediced its best for him i hate injecting him so much so the pump is best and so will sugars will be more controlled. He has been diabetic since he was 18months old so you can imagen and yes like you say if you are a grown man and could handle it imagen alittle child and yes us as parents we are hurting but my son is very strong and such a happy child.

  16. Diabetic 1 as well Insurance coverage can be a pain to achieve . I am fortunate to have the Medtronic system including the CGM . How does one get involved with the American Diabetes Association to promote awareness and assistance for people with this disease and those who have not been diagnosed….. Yet . Thanks Scott !

  17. Hi there I'm currently trying to decide whether or not getting an insulin pump, would you recommend getting one? I'm 18 years old and to be honest I hate injections (been needing since I was 3 months old 🙁 ) but in the video the pump looked quite painful. I assume its not excruciating because nobody would use them then but is it that bad that it could put me off them? I realise you may not reply as this video is kind of old but hey maybe someone else could 🙂 Thanks and take care.

  18. Thanks for this video.  I was recently prescribed the same system, the Paradigm Revel with the Enlite sensor.  This video lets me know what I am in for.  I will definitely not miss the pricks and shots ten times a day!

  19. I'm not diabetic and my heart just broke. All those bruises and needles. If only people who need to lose a few pounds would watch. My heart goes out to the Type I's as they didn't do anything to cause their disease.

  20. I too have diabetes I have type 1 & I was diagnosed last November I'm still new too it and trying to be strong even tho some days it feels easier to give up

  21. Hi Scott you are an incredible guy, funny, Smart, awesome Microsoft technology teacher and of course a life warrior. you are my hero.

  22. Hi! Have you ever tried – the Curesal Rapid Diabetes Reversal program (should be on GOOGLE – have a look)? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got solid results in lower sugar levels from it. 

  23. Scott I appreciate you making this video. I was born with Diabetes and my mother was told I would outgrow it. However as you know you don't outgrow it it gets worse unfortunately I have been fighting getting the pump simply because of all the monitoring and have been told about people getting really bad infections from them have you had that happen at all or is this just insurance not wanting to pay???

  24. Very informative. I never knew the details of how an insulin pump worked. Now I know way more than I did before. Thanks!

  25. Hi, very nice info, i have type 1 diabetes for 14 years, i live in europe and was recently given the chance to use an equipment like yours (insulin pump), but i was afraid so i refused, and now i keep using the insulin shots and finger pricks like 7 times a day. I don't know but for me it feels wrong to have a needle 24h a day inside my body

  26. Very informative and I posted this on Facebook to explain diabetic pumps to a friend. I'm not a diabetic…but I can relate (My Father was).


  27. i've had diabetes since i was 2 and for a long time people have been asking me the same questions like how did u get it? or how do u take care of it? or will this make u high? or will this make u low? it's really annoying but i tell the askers anyway because like me their curius

  28. I was ten month old when I was diagnosed, I've had over 17,000 shots and 23,000 finger pricks. I got my first pump today. I'm 12 now.

  29. I'm diabetic and I have been after a pump for just over 5 years. I've always been nervous about it due to the cannula, you have reassured me, I just wish that we had the funding in the UK. 

  30. Scott, you did fantastic on this video. My dad is 78 yrs old and he had it in his mind that this pump would change his life. He is going blind so after watching the video he now knows this will not work for him. He is taking shots and he is doing great managing it. You video was so incredibly informational, THANK YOU!

  31. Escuse my english.. It`s not my nativ language and try to do my best.. Hi. I`m a Type 2.. and recently had a DKA about 3 months ago and I was put on injectable insulin. I use pens for fast acting insulin and slow acting insulin. I`ve seen many insulin pumps videos and CGMs.. and I don`t understant one thing.. If the tehnology got so advanced that we can link a CGM to the pump.. why do I need to tell the pump how much insulin to give? If the sensor is taking my BG level every 5 mins, why do I need to tell the pump what to do? If I eat 50grams of carbs a meal, the sensor does not sense that? I mean the BG level is going up for sure.. I`m not understanding why the need of continuos BG monitoring.. Thanks a lot for the video.. Best regards form Romania.

  32. I've been a diabetic for a little over a year now, just went to a diabetic support group that had 5 other kids my age (16-18) with type 1 and other issues like epilepsy. it was a great experience because when I was diagnosed I became anti-social and stayed locked away in my room away from everyone. I got to meet new people who share the same things as me. And I got to find out about a diabetic retreat for a weekend, i'm a bit nervous but I may go just to see what it's like. Apparently the Adults or "staff" there are all diabetic as well. Whenever someone asks about diabetes i'm going to show them this video because it explained it so well.

  33. I don't know if you're still active on YouTube but I found your video informative. I have a pump inside me that dispenses pain medication into my spinal fluid to help with my severe fibromyalgia. What you go through seems tedious but I had to have surgery to have my pump implanted. It was a fight for insurance coverage just like you were talking about with your pump. I have what looks like an old flip phone folded that talks to my pump when I need an extra bolus. Those are usually when I've been chasing my teenagers around! I go to the dr every 6 weeks to three months depending on how much medicine I use from my pump. They put a large needle into my stomach and into the port on the pump. They suck out the leftover meds and put fresh fentanyl in. My pump will have a battery life of 4-7 years and it has to be surgically replaced. But what made me comment was when you said what if you're a child doing this?!? There are little wheelchair bound children with this same pump just its not pain meds it's baclofen which helps people with spasticity issues become more limber and relaxed. I have always been an advocate for the health of children especially juvenile diabetes. My sister is a nurse case manager and she has cerebral palsy and had considered getting the baclofen treatment. I think she is finally ready. We're just a bunch of robotics dependent people trying not to fall apart. God bless stay strong!

  34. Nice demo dude,I've seen lot of unwanted reviews and demo's in youtube,this is useful demo for lot of people,here in India it's not affordable to get insulin pump 

  35. Scott, thank you for sharing. Thank you for explaining and showing in such an educational and understandable fashion. Thank you for helping fight diabetes – and especially for thinking of the kids who go through this. I wish you all the best!

  36. So my insulin pump was taken away from me chase my BG was way out of control. I watch your videos over and over, Now what I did wrong was the insulin pump insertion on my himp were your cgm is. I revised everything lol I put the cgm on my other parts of my body while my pump was on my hill. I was stinging alot. Can you do an updated Insulin pump tutorial like 720p HD and explain what the pump does and stuff. Doc said had to learn how to use one first and it seems your great at that please!

  37.  I wish you get well very soon, came across your video while researching type 1 diabetes for my college work. those needles must hurt. #Strongman      

  38. I just got diagnosed in December When I had DKA and found out I'm type one. I am scared to death to take my insulin because of the lows I've had. The worst was at 2.6 and almost comatose. I never realize that it's this bad. I'm scared all the time and my hair is falling out

  39. Hi Guys Im 13 yrs old and im diabetic (recently diagnosed) im on injections not pump therapy and i would like to ask you guys what would be better pump therapy or injection pens Thanks Guys

  40. Thank you so much for sharing this and your perspective. As a student, this video was very instructional, and I appreciate your how genuine you are.

  41. @Greg Ryerson

    That message has helped me a lot and im waiting on my pump

    The best of luck on your future

    Thank you

  42. Thanks for your video Scott! Luckily the needles for CGM are smaller and they're changed only once every 6 days now. Small but mighty improvements every year! You did a wonderful service being so open and honest for others to view. Grateful!!!

  43. Thank you for sharing. I was just diagnosed with Type 1 about a month ago, and am currently on DMI and 4 finger pricks a day. My endo is trying to convince me a pump like this is the way to go, the only thing that holds me back is the fact of having something attached to me all the time.

  44. Scott do you naturally have really high blood sugars? Is that why you take 30 units of novalog a day? do you take long acting?

  45. Thanks, Scott! I teach physician associate students, and I'm showing this video to them to help them understand what you go through.

  46. I am about to go on this pump and the CGM and I would like to thank you for posting this because I really wanted to know how you inserted the CGM and the pump itself because when I did the trial I had to insert the needle by hand not by the plunger and I was hoping that I could do it by the plunger so Im happy that I will be able to use the plunger

  47. My sister has been diabetic for years and is now getting ready to go on the pump. so thank you for this informational video.

  48. >Groundbreaking New Research Shows How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes in 3 Weeks Go here< –>https://facebook.com/537403699776486?sk=app_190322544333196&ref=s

  49. I hope technology has advanced since 2010 and now you don't have to reinsert the pump every 3 days. I had no idea how much work diabetic people had to go through to stay alive.

  50. Hi Scott, and sorry if this question was previously answered. You mentioned that you use Excel to determine how much insulin to deliver. Could the pump itself not do this (and in effect become like an electronic pancreas)? Given the computing power and storage available on mobile devices, I can't help thinking that the pieces are in place for this.

  51. Awesome video! Thank you so much. I am in my 50's and this is no fun. It is expensive, nerve racking and frustrating. You just made it a little easier.

  52. You're awesome! I'm working w a teen who wears one. It's scary for me because I worry I'll forget the protocols. So I'm here. I don't have diabetes but I have chronic pain from a neck injury n it's a full time job managing it n my life around. I thank you for your education video. God bless

  53. Too bad there's not a Bluetooth PAN between the sensor and the pump so that you can maintain your blood sugar level w/ little to no human intervention.

  54. I got type one diabetes at the age of 8 and 3 yrs later I get the pump 🙁 it's hard btw I have type 1


  55. Oh my god! That last part brought me to tears and I suddenly started crying 😢 I’m a Pediatrician, and my heart breaks into pieces every time I newly diagnose a child with DM and break the bad news to the parents. God only knows what they are thinking. As much as I try to explain and comfort them, I know that it will be a hard journey for them to care for a young child with DM. THANK YOU SCOTT ♥️ You are truly a fighter. Only who knows what the complications of DM can really understand the struggle you go through.

  56. I'm a T2 with a very bad back whose complications have become so bad that my Endo wants to put me on this setup. It looks miserable, my heart goes out to you. What sucks is that the CGM doesn't interface with the pump so that it delivers automatically based on a goal blood sugar reading. Now I'm clear on that.

  57. can any one help me on finding the medtronic insulin pump
    512/712 (all firmware)
    515/715 (all firmware)
    522/722 (all firmware)
    523/723 (with firmware 2.4A or lower)
    554/754 (European Veo, with firmware 2.6A or lower; OR Canadian Veo with firmware 2.7A or lower)
    one of this please if any one have or know whare to buy one but if any one have old one i would love to get my hands on it
    i needed it for my final year project project any help contact me at [email protected]
    tnks all

  58. Very well explained!! One thing that I do to make it hurt less is to take a deep breath in, line up the needle to where u want it and get your angle, "perse" your lips and slowly start blowing the air out and then inject WHILE blowing out. It really works, for most of the time. I hope this helps you. And I manually inject the needle with the the canular instead if using that hurtful devise. One question that I'd like to ask you is, how do people afford to buy the supplies?? I remember years ago when I could get 2 vials of insulin,for $11.00!! Not 1 vial for OVER $400.00 (ball park). Makes me sick!!! Anyhow, take care. ☺

  59. We keep making up excuses for God's mistakes. As appointed General/King Neopolan said it best, "Religion, I Love that stuff it's Keep's common people Quiet…" 📚✒♦wounder where we got white privilege authoritarianism ???

  60. I'm type 2 and its a huge fight to get an insulin pump. I'm trying to raise funds but everyone keeps saying to go to ADP here in Canada but they wont touch me because I'm not type 1. Do you have any suggestions ?

  61. I am a T-1 diagnosed in 1997 and I have never had a Ha1c over 7. I am also Hypoglycemic unaware so can't feel low blood sugars. The other thing is I am Canadian so all the cost is payed for by the government. Just today the BC government said they were going to cover all the costs for the pump so I am thinking about getting one. I also found out that Endocrinologists in my area have been giving away the new continues testing meters so I have to go back to see mine and see if he will give me one for free. The pharmacy's don't have them in stock yet. Demand out passed supply.

  62. Hi, I know this is an old video, but as a thirteen year old girl who was diagnosed 6 weeks ago I found this very helpful. Thank you so much for sharing this as I have been considering getting one for a while. Thank god I live in the UK where healthcare is free . X

  63. A friend of mine is type 1 diabetic and has had the pump for years. Now he has the CGM and was showing me how he uses it so I wanted to see more. Thanks so much! 
    For anybody in the comments that is curious: Type 1 is a genetic autoimmune disease that just happens. Type 2 is caused by poor diet and Insulin resistance. Some genetics may also be involved in type 2. Type 1 can not be reversed or cured as of yet. Type 2 can be cured/reversed in earlier stages but in later stages the body can become so out of whack it becomes incurable.

  64. You talked about how much it hurts and I assume you must be either alergic to pain or really "sensitive", I've been doing self insulin shots now for 5 yrs and I almost don't even notice the 1/2 inch needles anymore, plus you spoke numerous times about how "expensive" everything is but you are clearly covered by insurance so the price is really immaterial, I understood all of what you provided, just wanted to give you feedback on your barely acceptable delivery!

  65. Thanks! That helped me a lot. I've survived 3 strokes by the age 31 found out I was diabetic in 03 had my first stroke 6 months afterward. Now I am type 1 i had my a1c down to 6.0 but I lost my mom and dad then my numbers went haywire. Now I'm thinking about getting the pump. Plus i forget (very easily) to take insulin. I've been through enough with 4-5 shots the pricking of my fingers.

  66. Excellent video man, as a type 1 myself, for 38 years it is a constant battle each day to try to be a normal as possible. I am moving onto a pump in next month and hope it will give me better control and a lot more freedom than multiple daily injections

  67. Hi ive been diabetic type 2 since i was 5 years old i am now 23 and this video was very helpful. I am from a remote area of south africa and am now busy with insulin pump research

  68. How long has the American Diabetes Association been around, and after all of these years, they have not found a cure for diabetes. I’m 55 years old, and have been living with diabetes since I was eight years old. Canada has a cure for diabetes. Of course you would have to take organ rejection medicine to live with the results of the cure for life. But you don’t have to keep up with the cost of taking care of your disease. Money, and the big pharma lobbyists are the reason why they have not found a cure for diabetes. Just my opinion.

  69. My youngest son is 21 and just found out he has type 1 diabetes. The drs are already talking about a pump. When my oldest son died at age 18 we donated his pancreas to a man who had diabetes. I say had because he no longer has diabetes.
