With tubed pumps there is usually a choice of infusion set, so you can use one that suits you best. If you have only ever used one type of infusion set you might want to ask your pump nurse or the pump company for samples of the other infusion sets to try out.
The variety includes:
- manual vs. automatic insertion
- teflon vs. steel cannula
- straight-in vs. slanted needle
- ability to disconnect the infusion set without removing the cannula
See the comparison table linked above to find out what types of infusion set are available with which pumps.
