Re: [IP] Re: Tape



Try Hypafix tape or use a sandwich method of taping....skin barrier of
Tegaderm or some other clear dressing,  infusion set goes right thru either of
these . With Hypafix,you cut a length larger then the one under the set, then
put that over the insertion set.  If you are using a MiniMed soft set you need
to fold the top square into fours and snip off a small edge of it so when you
unfold it, place it over the blue "button".  If you use a clear adhesive like
Tegaderm, or Polyskin, then the tape for the infusion set is placed on top of
the set.  Ask your pump trainer about options.  That person probably has
several methods to show you.
