RE: [IP] Re: Quick sets

I use the Quicksets. I have not had a bent/crimped cannula. I use the
abdomen for the sites, and am very careful to align the inserter
perpendicular to my body. Also I do not use the belt line, or the car seat
belt line. These will move the site slightly possible causing a bent/crimped

Subject: [IP] Re: Quick sets

I know this has been discussed in the past, but I was wanted to hear from 
anyone who is successfully using the quickset by minimed.  I know there have

been many problems in the past but I'm hoping most have been overcome.  My 
son has just switch from the sils to quickset.  He is 12 and is confortable 
inserting the quickset himself (with inserter) but is not willing to do the 
sils himself.  He loves the sites.  Last night we had our first incident of 
a crimped canula.  He was 500 when I checked at 1am.  Any hints or advice? 
We'd like to stick with it but know we will need to be very deligent about 
checking the site.
