Infusion Sets.

The right infusion set can make all the difference. There are many types of infusion sets, so you can choose the one that best fits your body. The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump can use virtually any insulin infusion set with a Luer-lock connection. Not every pump gives you this flexibility. inset™ II infusion set. 90 degree infusion set (90 degree angle of insertion) An all-in-one infusion set + insertion device combines the inserter and infusion set in a single, portable unit, so they are a snap to change anytime, anywhere. It has a friendly packaging to carry in a pocket or purse with a convenient, built-in-needle cover for after use. The introducer needle is removed so only the flexible cannula stays in place. The single- handed insertion placement and insertion for both inset™ II and inset™ 30 can be done one-handed. When removing the introducer needle, inset™ 30 requires holding the set in place with the other hand. allows for flexibility in site rotation, and the reversible grippers make it easy to disconnect and reconnect. You’ll feel safe knowing you are securely reconnected when you hear the audible “click”. Includes a disconnect feature at site and clear window to view site. inset™ II is compatible with all insulin pumps featuring a standard Luer-lock connection. Fill volume is 0.3 units for 6mm cannula and 0.5 units for 9mm cannula. Needlephobic patients, those with dexterity problems, patients with low vision or those inserting sets in areas that are harder to reach may prefer infusion sets with a mechanical insertion. inset™ 30 infusion set.

Infusion Set Comparison

Infusion Set Comparison

Although patch pumps applied directly to the skin are more available, most pumps infuse insulin from a pump reservoir through an infusion set. No single set works well for everyone, so choosing an infusion set can be difficult. The type of set shipped with a new pump is usually one manufactured by the pump company and this set may or may not be the best choice. Fortunately, there are many alternatives to choose from. Metal or Teflon: Today's straight-in metal sets offer fine gauge needles that are comfortable, reliable, and the easiest to insert. Teflon sets use a metal needle inserter that is removed after insertion, leaving only the Teflon tubing under the skin. Generally, the longer the Teflon, the more reliable the set. Slanted Teflon sets tend to be more reliable for many pumpers than straight-in Teflon Sets, but are generally best inserted by hand rather than with an automatic inserter. Length: Infusion sets come in different line lengths and different needle lengths. Typical needle lengths for straight-in sets are 6 mm for infants, 8 mm for a child, 10 mm for an adult, and 12 mm for larger adults while 13 mm and 17 mm serve similar functions for the slanted Teflon sets. Most infusion lines are 24, 31, or 42 inches in length. Shorter lines work better for small children and those who prefer a short line, while longer lines work well for those who are taller. Needle Gauge: Gauge is a standard way to measure diameter of a needle. A lower gauge means a larger needle. For example, 25 gauge is larger than 27 gauge. Connection Compatibility: Most infusion sets have a standard threaded luer lock connection that can be used on most pumps. The Medtronic Paradigm and the Sooil Diabecare pumps use their own proprietary connections, so these pumps work with only a limited nu Continue reading >>

Inset 30's

Inset 30's

I HATE them. I tried them last year when they were still fairly new and couldn't get them figured out. My boluses would HURT after just a couple hours and the sites would only last a day and a half before I'd rip it out because they'd hurt too bad. My idiot doctor prescribed them to me for my last prescription (although I specifically said the normal Insets are what I need) So I've been stuck with 4 boxes of these things for a 3 month supply. How do you use them so they actually work right (I'm really slender/muscular, maybe that's a problem?)? Is there a good spot on your body to put them so they actually last 3 days? D.D. Family T1 since 1987, pumping MM Revel + CGMS Are Inset 30s the angled sets? I have a Minimed pump and I use Silhouettes which are angled. When I first started I used the inserter and had mixed results. Once I started to insert them manually it was so much better. Is there a way to get the set out of the built-in inserter and put it in manually? It's so much easier to control the angle that way. I found the Silhouette inserter would often go in too deep and the sets would be painful. Re-read the directions that come with the inset 30's and read them step by step while inserting it. Its the only way I could figure that thing out lol. But I too had problems with angled sets. I use the Inset and have no problems. With angled sets for some reason they would always with out fail kink up on me. The 90 degree sets work great. Also call up animas maybe they can swap out the order for you. [FONT=Century Gothic][SIZE=3][COLOR=Magenta]Kris[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Lucida Sans Unicode] I weigh 131 lbs...I use the 60mm instead of the 90mm sets. I'm thinking about getting an Animas pump but am ready to try out their insertion set before hand. I've had pretty co Continue reading >>

Minimed's Mio Infusion Set

Minimed's Mio Infusion Set

Doctor: I want you to get off the Quickset. Doctor: Why dont you try the Silhouette instead? Me: Because I wore the Silhouette for five years and the sites kept getting infected. I had so many problems that I switched to the Quickset. Occasionally they suggest I try one of the sets that have a steel needle instead of a plastic cannula (the Sure-T), but Ill be honest: Ive never been into that option. Having a needle stay in me all the time doesnt sound comfortable. Since Minimeds reservoirs only work with their infusion sets, that means Ive been stuck. That is, until now. I recently went to a different doctor and found out that there is a new option from Minimed: the Mio.The Mio is exactly the same as the Animas Inset (as in, manufactured by the same company and everything), but has been redesigned to be compatible with Minimeds reservoir. Ive only tried the Mio a few times, but the way Id describe it is as follows: it has a vertical cannula, like the Quickset, but clips on in a way thats more similar to the Silhouette. The benefits of this, as I see it, are two-fold. First, its very obvious when its clipped in unlike the Quickset, which occasionally can come partially undone without your noticing it and then, whoops, youve got high blood sugar and pants that smell like bandaids. Awesome. Second, the Mios footprint, as it were, is less conducive to my dreaded insulin donuts. Whereas the Quickset puts pressure on your skin in a way that encourages liquid to pool, the Mio seems to avoid that problem. Im not sure how, but one possibility is simply that it leaves a slightly larger triangular footprint on your body (without being noticeably larger than the Quickset) which allows the insulin to disperse more easily into your tissue. Third, the Mio is cleverly designed to have Continue reading >>

Insulin Pumps...

Insulin Pumps...

This does not replace any medical advice. The following is for your information only. Please feel free to share with your diabetes team but it does not make any changes in your diabetes management without first consulting your diabetes team An insulin pump is not a cure but another method of insulin delivery. It is a small pager-like device that mechanically pumps set amounts of fast-acting insulin into the patient's body. This is not yet a closed loop system. It is a system that requires the setting of "basal rates" and the calculation of various insulin to food ratios to be used in the run of a day. Unlike Multiple Daily Injection therapy (MDI), pump therapy does not use a long-lasting insulin but small amounts of fast-acting insulin are delivered throughout the day. For some this leads to feelings of unease as the threat of DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis) looms greater. For others it simply leads to feelings of freedom as they no longer are forced to follow the clock. The peaks of long-lasting NPH insulins may have been a problem, or the single basal rate offered by insulin glargine may not match their body's needs. An insulin pump lets you set a variety of "basal rates" to meet the naturally occurring needs of your body. It further allows you to match insulin to carbohydrate intake rather than having to "feed" your insulin. You now chose to eat, snack or graze. Pumping insulin is not for everyone. It is another method of insulin delivery. Some do not like the idea of being attached to a mechanical device 24/7 but the freedom, flexibility and tight control often outweighs any of the negative concerns. Please take your time when choosing an insulin pump. You need to the pump to fit with your needs and your lifestyle. We have a detailed outline of each pump company's curre Continue reading >>
