Re: [IPk] queries already and not started on pump yet!



Hi Rhoda
Do you mean that you've managed to suspend the pump and now can't un-suspend
it? All you need to do is to do the same thing as you did to suspend it, ie
press Select and then Act (since you're already on the Suspend screen).

With regard to allergic reactions, there are a lot of different tapes and
"sticky stuff" out there and most people find that there's at least one that
they can use. Some kinds of infusion set (e.g. Sofset) require you to put
tape down to stick it in place. Others (e.g. Sihouette / Tender) have their
own sticky tape already attached to the set. The tape on the Silhouette is
OK for me but I have problems with some of the "loose tape" e.g. the ones
supplied with Sofsets. You need to experiment to find what will work for
you, but most people find there is something they can tolerate. If you've
got samples of tape to try, then do a little experimentation....
