Re: [IP] Infusion set locations, was Site changes



Referring to set with needle at end of tubing...disadvantage is you need to
clamp tubing with slide clamp next to the syringe cartridge and seal syringe
with a clean capped needle whenever you want to be unattached to the set.  :((
Some pumpers are having good luck with the Tender, etc., sets inserted with
less of an angle ( as indicated here in discussion)  MiniMed had a picture of
sites, if you call their 800 number they would probably send one.  An
interesting site used at diabetes camp with some of the teenage boys is the
back of the upper arm...made me nervous to say the least, but seems to work
for them.  Whatever it takes.....
