RE: [IP] pump site issues



Hi!

Sof-sets are straight-in sets. At a guess, your daughter has less
subcutaneous fat on her back than on her abdomen, and that thinner
fat layer is not thick enough. She may want to try an angled set
-- a short-needle Silhouette might be a good start.

In case of a very thin fat layer, one-handed insertion  cannot be
used, as that situation requires pinching up a skin-fold with one
hand and inserting the set with the other. Just a heads-up.

Cheers,
Felix.
