Medtronic has a variety of infusion sets to meet individual needs.
An infusion set includes the thin plastic tubing that delivers insulin from the pump to the body. This tubing comes in different lengths to accommodate various needs. At the end of the tubing is either a soft, flexible cannula or a stainless steel needle. The cannula, which is a small, tapered tube, is inserted under the skin in a spot such as the abdomen, thigh, or buttocks. This spot is called the infusion site, and the infusion set remains in place for up to two or three days. Infusion sets require a prescription and, depending on type, rmust be changed every 48-72 hours. Consult the instructions for full details, including associated risks and how to avoid them.
The MiniMedTM MioTM Advance infusion set is our newest set. This infusion set has a 90°, soft cannula and can be inserted with only 4 steps. The all-in-one insertion design means that no separate serter is needed.
