Re: [IP] Infusion Set Question



Hey Debz,
I use the quicksets and prefer them much better because after disconnect, I
have not little tube hanging around. You only have about 1/4" sticking out
instead of about 6" so you still can't get 'snagged' on anything.  This is a
little more appealing during those intimate moments. You have a larger site
area only to hold the set more securely since that is where you disconnect
from, but it's not a problem.
