Re: [IPk] soft-sense (pricking fingers)



I'd always thought this was a weird thing to do :-) and had never managed to
get blood out of the back of my finger. But I've been trying it again and
most of the time it works very well (though sometimes I get no blood at
all). It stops you getting blood on your computer keyboard too :-) I use the
finger pricker as usual (the one that comes with the Bayer Esprit - forget
what it's called).
