Re: [IP] Fast Take Pokers and Baths with Tenders



Joyce, I'm assuming you are talking about the Tender infusion sets for the
Disetronics pump.  Have you ever tried Polyskin II?  It is a transparent
dressing that is 2in x 2.75 in.    The company that puts them out is Kendall
and for product information they have a 1-800 number.  It is 1-800-962-9888.
I used these when I was pregnant with our little one as the site was in the
side of my buttocks, and kept coming out.  My CDE gave me a sample of these
and I ordered them.  They worked great in keeping the cannula intact, and
you can still see the site as the dressing is transparent.  Just a
suggestion.
