[IPk] Which Infusion set
I am wearing the pump since 3 weeks and am very happy about my
decision to change. I nonetheless find the infusion set to be the
most problematic aspect of the pump.
I currently use the DISECTRONIC Classic Pc and apply a 3M Tegaderm on
top of it.
I sometimes have red marks at the needle insertion site, pains when
one of my kids jumps in my arms, or discomfort in certain positions
(such as turning my upper-body when going into reverse with my car).
I also sometimes feel sort of a byte at the first bolus after changing
I find the needle on the Classic set to be quite long which is a
problem for me since I am so skinny that I can hardly find any fat in
which to insert this long needle.
Has anyone experienced the same symptoms, would a switch to the Rapid
Pr infusion set help me in anyway and do I still need to use the
Tegaderm with that set?
I have a second question:
I have not had a battery alarm yet and am expecting one soon. How
long do I have before the pump Disectronic Htron plus V100 stops when
I hear the beep?
- When it beeps it has already stopped,
- When it beeps it will stop within 1 hour or
- When it beeps I still have 5 to 10 hours to change the battery).
I am very interested in your answers.
Thank for all the help you can give.

PS: some optimistic aspects of the pump, my results are much better,
my total insulin consumption has decreased by 20%, I sleep better and
I don't forget my injections anymore.
