"I've been wanting the Next Link for a good while and sad it's not available in Canada. I talked to someone from Medtronic Canada last week and she said that they have the application in with Health Canada and expect it to come through at…"

Cyrilla replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"I have not reused any of this, but I can't stand to lose so much insulin each time I change the quick-set. But I am a newbie with the pump. I didn't even know you could reuse any of this. I wait until the reservoir is almost empty, before…"

earthling replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"No, I don't leave it in the same spot. Mine get sore too. So at 3 days I move the needle, trim away the adhesive circle, clean the needle w/ an alcohol swab, then use athletic tape to tape it down in a new spot. So the set lasts a week, but not…"

Equestrian replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"Note that medtronics sets include tubing and canula. So there is no monetary savings to reuse of tubing except for unused insulin left in the tubing. In another forum, it was posted that tubing, depending on length, holds between 5 and 8 units of…"

Spock replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"Back in the day of my Disetronic pump, tubing was to be used more than once. The cartridge held a lot of insulin, so I just attached the current tubing to the new set, primed and put in the new set. It was standard and the way I was taught to do it…"

Damon replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"That's what I do right now.. well.. every other site change, I change the tubing. But I think many people do it much more infrequently."

Damon replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"Yeah I alternate tubing and non-tubing.. the boxes used to be 5 of each rather than separate. I was told they changed it because people were reusing the tubing for longer so there was a demand for boxes with no tubing at all."

Damon replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"Do you leave the same set in for a whole week? I can't do that.. My sites are always starting to get red and irritated after 3-4 days."

GracieSF replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"I too change the tubing every 4 days when I change the reservoir. As long as you prime to make sure insulin is getting through it should be OK."

Nicole replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"Apparently re-using tubing and the reservoir can change the insulin consistency into almost a jelly instead of a liquid, thereby causing it not to work. I had a girl tell me that it happened to her often, but I've never had this experience. I…"

still_young_at_heart replied to Damon's discussion 'Reusing tubing?'
"I don't reuse tubing but I only change the tubing when I change the reservoir which is every 4 or 5 days."
