Re: [IPk] "Bad sites" (sofset)



Can you define a sof-set - for Distetronic users.
Thanks
Zoe

Sorry!  There's a picture of one at 
http://www.applied-medical.co.uk/sofset.htm

It has a Teflon catheter, 90% insertion angle and an automatic disconnect at 
the end of a six inch plastic tail. It goes in with a needle which you pull 
out leaving the Teflon in.  You load it into a blue plastic thingy 
resembling a giant fingerpricking device in order to fire it into yourself.  
This automatic firing was (I think) the point at which I was running into 
problems with bent needles, needles not all the way in and crimped cannulas.

Happy Monday to everyone who needs cheering up.
