Re: [IP] silhouette trouble



We've (8 year old Gus and family) only had blood in the canula
once...assumed we'd hit a blood vessle and changed the set immediately.
However we've had lots of bent/crimped tips...have just switched to using
the upper/outer thigh area and running the needle perpendicularly to the
muscle (as suggested by Michael) so that muscle activity doesn't crimp the
tip....
Results are somewhat better....
