Re: [IPk] RE: Quick Sets

I have started using Quick Sets only recently, but I really like them - they 
stick like superglue and I don't need to worry about the angle of insertion 
any more as they just go straight in at 90 degrees. I haven't bothered with 
putting the plastic cover thingie on the connection point either and have had 
no problems, although I always shower rather than bath.

The thing that bugs me is that it is not possible to buy just the cannula bit 
on its own, like you can with silhouettes. A syringe of insulin in the pump 
lasts me about 6 days and with the silhouettes I could change just the 
cannula half way through - a job taking only seconds. Now I have to muck 
about with changing all bits bar the syringe, priming the pump etc etc every 
3 days, which is an unnecessary bind in my view. Morag Mc Laren of MiniMed 
has said to me that she will look into the possibility of supplying the 
cannula bit separately and I hope she can work something out. Apart from 
anything else, I am buying plastic tubing which I don't need to replace every 
3 days and this business is expensive enough.

The Quick Sets are great though!!
