Re: [IP] Silhouette vs. sofsets??



Jenni
I use the silhouette infusion set and love it.  I started pumping with a 508
in February and my trainer started me with the sofsets and I hated all the
adhesive.  A friend's son is on the pump and was using silhouettes and he
showed me how to insert them.  I even had to show my trainer how to insert
it.  She had only used the sofsets.  I have also tried the new quickset and
still prefer the silhouette.  I had a problem with the  quickset cannula
pulling out and also bending.  They were much easier to insert though.  I
haven't had any problems with the silhouettes, so I'll stick with them.  I
sent back my unopened boxes of infusion sets to Mini Med and they exchanged
them for me.  Pumping is SO GREAT!  Brenda
