Re: [IP] Soft-sets Poping out

All the tape in the world will NOT prevent the canula from being popped out 
of the skin.  If the canula is too long or hits close to a muscle which 
decides to push it put, it won't matter if you are using Mastisol, Skin Tach, 
Skin Bard, a ton of tape, NOTHING.  If the adhesion is staying down then that 
is NOT the problem.  The problem lies with the length of the canula or 
perhaps how a site is inserted....But NOT the tape!

mom to Joshua  who went through 5-6 sites in 7 days in the beginning only to 
switch sets and use Mastisol and now things are GREAT!!!
