Re: [IP] Silhouette complaint

Natalie, that looseness there is not connected to the insulin path.  That
is in fact not open to air.  The Silhouette chamber is designed with two
ends held together by pressure from a rubber dam.  The hole that the
exiting catheter goes through is just a guide.  Take one completely apart
to look at it.  It's really quite a clever bit of engineering.

If you take a used set and look very closely at the place where the
cannula comes out of the button and goes into the plastic, and from
there into your body, you will notice that there is a little hole in the
plastic for the cannula to go through. It's not a solid piece. You can
move the cannula back and forth through the hole, and you can even take
it out of the hole.
I'm not sure why the set is designed that way, but it really does leave
your cannula wound open to the air and water.>>>>>>
