[IP] Re: Emala Cream

From: email @ redacted
I would like 
to hear from anyone who is using the cream about the pros and cons.

Pam, Cory's trainer insisted that he use the emala cream.  He puts it on an 
hour to an hour and a half before he plans to change his infusion set.  He 
has the small tubes and uses 1/2 tube each time and covers it with the 
tegaderm patch.  It does a terrific job of numbing the site, but if you are 
trying to do an emergency site change this is too long to wait.  Many people 
skip the pain killers and just go for it!
