 My gusher was with a Silhouette. I had too many problems with QuickSets and
stopped using them. I mentioned them because I used to leave the old sets in
until I was sure a new one was working properly, then I'd take the old one out.
Most of the old ones were removed when I was at work. I would hate to have had a
gusher there and have to take the bus home wearing clothes covered in blood. Now
with Silhouettes, I always remove the old cannula in the shower before inserting
a new one. It was nice not having to worry about cleaning up a bloody mess, or
holding a cold compress on it until it stopped bleeding.
