Re: [IP] Re: infusion sets

I switched to the Sure-T last month and so far no problems with 'kinked' 
sets.  There is the Poly-Fin set with the bent needle, It is like the 
silhouette but the needle stays in I've used them and have had no problems, 
other than you have to use the IV3000 to tape it on.
