1 call to Medtronic should give you the "exact" requirement. I've been using 6mm and I use .5 for 6 years now per my CDE.
Thanks Erika.

The doctor should have carelink pro. They can access your records from their office. the carelink site has the info.

Erika,
I just gave my Endo and CDE my Carelink sign in info and they can access all my reports and pick all or which ever one they want to see. Works for me and they are happy too.
Good luck:)

The best way to dispose of the sharps in a an empty detergent bottle. Needles cannot penetrate it by accident. When the container is full, I put it in the trash and it goes to a landfill.
Comment by Helen Doolittle on May 16, 2010 at 9:17am
I put my sharps in a plastic cottage cheese container and then when it is full, I take it to work, which is a Oral Surgery office, and dispose of the sharps in the sharps container!

Oh, I put of the sharp items in an empty water gallon container and then drop those off at the sharps disposal place in the city.

Jennifer. the IV3000 and Prep were shipped with my pump and the other materials.

Jennifer

With the exception of the Intro Needle, I toss everything else in the trash.

How do you all dispose of your infusion supplies - obviously the introducer needle in the sharps container, but do you put your spent reservoirs cannulas, and tubing in there, or throw away in the regular trash?
