Re: [IP] getting back on the pump



Hi.  My friend's son had a similar problem.  What type of set are you using,
and are you allergic to the wings that hold the set down or actually
something on the cannula itself?  My friend was allergic to the wings of the
softset and also allergic to IV3000  tape.  He used silk tape and then would
place the set on top of this.
I may be talking about a whole different problem, but I thought I'd give it
a try.
