Re: [IP] a couple of ?s



Hi Ami
That little blue on the Sof-sets is the introducer needle.  You are suppose
to pull that out after you insert the Sof-set.  After insertion, hold the
Sof-set so it will not pull out.   (I place a finger on each wing)  While
holding the Sof-set to your body, twist the blue thing a quarter turn and
pull out.  That leaves the teflon cannula in place and therefore, NO MORE
PAIN.
