Re: [IPp] Re:-sets and water

 We were trained to use both but to make sure it is dry between each application
= alcohol, circle of Certain Dri antiperspirant (no deodorant), IV prep around
the Certain Dri, IV3000, IV prep and then insert through......her's stay
on....she didn't even loose one with all the sweating and swimming in Italy.....

  Maybe this has something to do with it -- Dan uses angled sets as well, 
silhouettes, and as I said has never had a problem with water. He uses butt and
thigh sites. Also, Melissa, I'm not sure you need both the alcohol pad and 
the IV prep. I thought the IV prep contained a cleansing agent as well, so the
alcohol would not be necessary. If you're using both, maybe you're diluting 
the sticky stuff with the alcohol. We were trained just to use the IV prep.

In our experience, the sets that go in at an angle rarely if ever come 
loose or fall off from water or sweat.
