Re: [IPk] more pump questions



That's interesting. 
I think I've noticed it every time with the Sofsets. Certainly never
with the Sils but I attributed that to the Sofsets being deeper than
the Sils (it only comes about halfway up the cannula).

Anyone else had this? I'd love to know what it actually is. I know,
it's a bit gross....
