Re: [IPk] the questions begin


Unknown to me our mailshot about the benefits of pumps and our training and
support package landed on the nurses doorstep the day after your 'training
session'.  We got a call same day and she is coming to our stand at Glasgow.
I've also asked our CSII Nurse Trainer to contact her for a one to one.  I
know that you are not on our pump but certain principles are common.

Having seen your correspondence with John N are you sure that the pump is
working correctly?

We have found that with our Tender ie teflon 'needle' set if your insertion
technique is a little hesitant the indwelling teflon 'needle' can pucker up,
cause pain and irritation and upset insulin delivery.  Could this be
happening with your current set

Best wishes

John H
