Re: [IP] New Pump User Intro.



I use the MM soft-set and here's the routine I was taught.  First I remove the
paper and expose the adhestive on the unit itself.  After I insert, I place BOTH
tapes over the unit (the ones that are packaged with the soft-set).  THEN, I cover
with Kendall Polyskin II.  Am I doing way too much?  Jim
