[IP] No Delivery



it seems this topic has been covered well however a catheter does not have to
be kinked to trigger the no delivery alarm.  if you are finding the alarm only
going off during boluses it very well may be due to the catheter leaning
against muscle and only impeding delivery when large doses need to be
delivered.  this has been the case with many children i have trained.  the
silouettes are the answer.  you have more control over depth.  and it's
certainly better than changing sites frequently.  also, you may want to try
numbing the site with ice before buying emla cream.
