[IP] Sets Sticking

Sara uses both the IV Prep and the Mastisol. She is in the water several hours
every day and is a sweater also. She puts on the IV Prep, lets it dry. She
then marks a bulls eye on her skin for the needle to insert through and then
applies Mastisol leaving the bulls eye Mastisol free. Then let the Mastisol
dry. She then inserts a tender needle set. She does not use any extra tape.
The sets stay attached just fine with all the swimming for three to four days.
The sets are still sticky after four days usually and she has to work them off
and a sticky residue is still there. But, they stay on.
Pam, mom to Sara
