Re: [IPk] Re: Charlie's pump



So far, so good. Charlie started on insulin today so it's now the real thing
and lots to learn!
On the question of infusion sets, Charlie first tried Sof-set (preferred by
Kings as less likely to bend) but he found it fiddly with the bits of tape
etc. He is now using Quick-set. He finds the Quick-serter easy to handle and
not frightening at all. The sticking plaster is very efficient and the other
day was still effective after an hour long bath! He likes the little cap
which goes on when he's bathing or showering rather than the 'tail' on the
Sof-set. We had to ask especially for 6mm needles - the 9mm looked too
horrific. Good luck with Danielle Barbara.
