When I starter pumping a couple of weeks ago with my Medtronic Minimed 522, I was offered two choices for my infusion sets, including the Silhouette and The Quickset. I wasn’t particularly attracted to a manual insertion of the gigantic needle, so I settled for the Quickset infusion sets.
Traditionally, Paradigm pump users have been limited to a small number of infusion sets due to the propietary nature of the Paradigm connectors. Fortunately, a company has created a special reservoir that provides pumpers with the freedom to use most infusion set available in the market.
So I decided to challenge my initial decision and order a few different infusion sets to compare them and make a decision about which one I want to use permanently.
I decided that at least for now, I wanted to stay with infusion sets that offer automated insertion, preferably with an integrated inserter. To that effect, I have selected three infusion sets for my initial comparison. the Minimed Quicksets, Smith Medical Cleo 90 and Unomedical Inset II.
Over the next few weeks I will be trying each of these infusion sets in turn, and will post a review of each here. If you have any other sets you think I should consider, I would love to know about it.
