Re: [IP] Infusion site irritation
David - I too seem to have irratation with the tape that comes with the
infusion sets. My supplier sent me samples of all different tapes with my
start up package. I pretty much have tried them all. I am sure each person
is different but, I have found that the one that works best for me is made by
Smith & Nephew. It is called High MVP Transparent Dressing #4007. What I
have done is placed one of these down before I actually insert my infusion
set. Then I tape the infusion set down with the tape in the package. I seem
to be OK as long as the top tape doesn't touch my skin. I am one of the luck
ones who is covered 100% for supplies so since I have also had some leakage.
I use only the Smith & Nephew now. I use one on bottom and one on top.
Hope this helps.
