Our current procedure for applying a sensor is:
- Clean the skin (soap and water)
- Clean with skin w an alcohol wipe and let it air dry - this can cause dryness to the skin resulting in irritation, but that's another issue.
- Soak the sensor adhesive with a Skin Tac wipe. It's preferable to let that dry a bit and then apply the sensor to the skin, being careful to push the adhesive down securely and completely.
This works for Caleb for a while. The tape may start to peel up, particularly in warmer month when he's swimming (and sweating). Then I use pieces of Flexifix to tape it back down.
