RE: [IP] IV 3000



I used to do this, but found that sometimes the needle caught a 'fiber' in
the iv3000 and then would clog my cath or crinkle it.  I then started
snipping a hole in the iv3000 and this worked very well, but my dr was
concerned with the sterile thing, even though he thought the risk was
minimal.  Then Minimed started putting an iv3000 with a hole in it in the
soft sets I use and that worked even better.  The reason I started doing
this was because I have an allergic reaction to the sticky they use on the
sets.  If I leave them on my skin for more than a day, when I change the set
I have the insertion place *and* the perfect outline of the 'wings' in red
rash.

I also bought some tapes from Minimed (can't remember the name) that had
holes in them already.

Subject: [IP] IV 3000


I would like to eliminate Mastisol and Detachol from our set changes.

I know some folks use IV3000 and then insert set right through it and then,
I 
think, cover the set (with a hole in the tape) with IV 3000 again.

Is this correct?

Thank you
