[IP] Keeping sils in Good Advice from Renee



Ryan:
     Sound advice to insert through IV 3000 first, EXCEPT for the IP 
mantra 
of YMMV ( which someone suggested revising to YMWV- your mileage WILL 
vary!)...My daughter used to apply Tegaderm, then her Sofset, then 
cover it 
with another Tegaderm....after the first year of pumping, she switched 
to 
Silhouettes (aka Comforts or Tenders) using NOTHING else other than 
the 
infusion set right out of the package....
   Nearly 6 years later, that still works fine..sets never come off, 
can be 
readily removed ( she even stopped using Unisolve)....
Regards
Renee (pump mom to Melissa, 20, dx'd at 9, pump 7 yrs)

hard to disconnect intentionally however... spot
