Common problems with Quick-sets from the point of view of a pump-expert DSN
I know: 1) psychological or even physical dependence on the Quick-serter,
which can break or just get wonky (springs wear out and plastic gets
brittle) 2) the Quick-serter causes much more trauma to subcutaneous tissue
than inserting a set manually 3) in thin grown-ups and in a lot of children
the Quick-set cannula is just too long and hits muscle so it kinks upon
insertion, especially when inserted with a Quick-serter.
My pump-expert DSN buddy says that manually inserting a Silhouette is the
way forward for anyone who can tolerate Teflon. I shall heed her advice and
go back to Silhouettes as soon as I'm through the last Quick-sets I have
on-hand, though I still think Silhouettes are not as nice for swimming and
long Lush baths.
Do you have the 6mm or 9mm Quick-sets at the moment? If you're using the 9mm
ones, trying to insert a 6mm one manually might be worth a go if Silhouettes
are not an option (but Silhouettes are cheaper than Quick-sets, if money is
an object and dependable insertion is a persistent problem with Quick-sets).
