RE: [IPp] Re: infusion sets

 We have had good luck with Quicksets by using an "IV Prep" wipe first, and then
letting it dry completely before inserting the Quickset. The slightly sticky
residue the wipe leaves between the set and the skin seems to prevent irritation
for Helena, don't know if it will work similarly for others, but it might be
worth a try. IV Preps cost $12 per box of 50 from MM website, they may be
cheaper elsewhere.

This is a great idea!  We have been using a tape barrier on the skin since 
pump start, because the QS adhesive bothered Jeremy.  It's been 7 months and 
now it's winter, so maybe things have changed in how he will react to just 
the QS adhesive only.  Never occurred to me how to test it without doing a 
real site with it.  8-)

Thanks for this suggestion,
mom to Jeremy, 8, pumping 6/02


remove the
needle, cut off the cannula and tubing, and just stick it on your son for a 
days to see if the adhesive is better tolerated. That way you (and your son)
wouldn't have to actually insert one, just to see if the adhesive worked out
