[IP] RE:Site Problems with Quicksets
Thanks Janis and Peter.
I do usually use the serter. However, they suggested I order a new one -
they said that perhaps the one I had was a bit old etc. I did that and have
received 3 now and every one of them catches and doesn't insert properly.
Therefore I have tried to do the manual insertion and ended up w/ bent
The SIL works for me too, but I really don't like it.
I have had the rough tubing mentioned earlier, bent cannulas, weak adhesive
and other problems with the last couple orders.
Hopefully the next will be better.

I experienced a crimped canula, and also a set that simply came out. I was
a wedding, and upon my return home I discovered that my BS was over 550.
I checked the infusion set, it simply came out as if there was no adhesive
it at all. That's strange, since everything sticks to me like glue, and I
sometimes need adhesive dissolvers to remove an infusion set. The lot
of that quick-set is 2208189, dated 2010-12. I've since switched to
Silhouettes, but need to insert it using the Silserter, which I hate. (The
quickset device is very user-friendly by comparison.) When I tried manual
insertion, the needle just bent, and didn't go in.

You ought to try the QuickSet serter before making any big changes.
