Re: [IP] infusion set and reservoirs


We were instructed to change the infusion set (Rapid D) every three 
days, the cartridge (reservoir) when it's empty and the tubing with 
every other cartridge change.

What we actually do? We change the infusion set every three to five 
days, the cartridge when it's empty (right now it's lasting approx three 
days) and the tubing with every third cartridge change (though not always).

The longest my son has gone with an infusion set is seven days.
