What do you do if your child needs a new infusion set while at school?

Poll dates: November 16 - 23, 2016
Total Votes: 31

With nearly three quarters of CWD readers reporting using an insulin pump, it's inevitable that an infusion set will come out at school. The question then is, "What do we do now?"

For kids who are old enough, self-inserting is clearly the best solution. But what about younger kids? In this week's poll, just one visitor reported that the school nurse would insert a new set. For everyone one, either a parent must go to school or they wait until the child returns from school to deal with it.

Given the complexity of inserting an infusion set and priming insulin for someone not used to the procedure, these results are not surprising.
