Okay, guys and girls. Hi, Dave (waving).
I did my first infusion set change yesterday evening. The pump educator inserted a Sof-Sert, because that’s all we had at the time. The next day my Sure-T samples had arrived, so that’s what I used when I changed. Coated skin with IV Prep, let dry a little, and then inserted Sure-T. No pain, easy insertion. I’m a little worried about the little flaps (wings) of plastic that you hold to insert. They sort-of stick up and I’m worried about getting something caught, like jeans, on them and pulling the needle out. So I used my only sheet of IV 3000, that the educator gave me, on top of the infusion set, to hold the flaps down. It was WAY too big and overkill, so I cut it, but then had trouble removing all the diff paper from it without wrinkles around the edges.
Does anyone else feel the need to tape down the plastic flaps, and if so, what do you use? Are there different sizes of IV3000?
Any input is welcome and appreciated.
