Re: [IP] RE: Need advice about site absorption problems
We've used the mio since they came out in uk for my 11 year old daughter. She
loves them. I would describe them as a cross between a silhouette and a quick
set. We used sils before couldn't get on with quick sets but the sils were too
hard for my daughter to insert herself.
The mios go in at a 90 degree angle with the inserter just flat on the body so
that makes it easier. However the actual canula you disconnect the same was as
the sils rather than the twist off quick sets.
They are smaller than the sils but not quite as flat but they do not stick out
as much as the quick sets either.
We love them and use the 6 mm with 60 cm tubing (shortest needle with longest

unit, but, can be detached as all the rest of MM infusion sets are. I use them
and the canula comes in the 'short' or the 'long' version. the tubing comes in
shorter and longer and what I absolutely love is the connection piece that is
used to detach from the reservoir comes in clear, pink and blue. I chose pink
because I can see exactly where to pinch for detaching. Had a problem seeing it
in all the other clear ones. Also love the all in one because I can throw an
extra set in my purse and it won't get squished.
