This question is for all the non-pod pumpers out there. How do you uncoil the new tubing when you insert a new set?
The sets come all packaged up together with the tubing which is very convenient, but the tubing is coiled up tightly.
I have an Animas pump so I use luer lock sets. I've used 3 different ones & in my experience the tightness of the coiling varies. The least coiled are the Comforts, the tubing is in the package with the infusion set coiled up but seems to straighten quite easily. With the Insets the tubing is wrapped around the inserter & sometimes has quite a kink where it joins the connector though I think recent sets are getting better. The worst are the Inset30s, the tubing is coiled up in a separate package, I expected it to be like the comforts but it seems more permanently coiled.
I just run my fingers up & down the tubing stretching it a bit. Sometimes works better than others.
So what do other pumpers do? Or am I the only person who finds coiled tubing very annoying.
