Re: [IP] cannula coming out of that active boy! Help again!



We tried the MM Sof-Set when first going on the pump...never got more than
36 hours out of a site (abdomen and butt) ...often less due to crimping
either where the cannula meets the backing or at one or more places on the
cannula (hard to imagine as they're so short....) Our endo won't start
children on the pump using Sof-Sets anymore...says the results are too
unpredictable.  However, we may have to try them again.  Thanks for the
suggestion.
