    Kayla just did a site change and she uses the Quicksets.. she put it in using the quickserter and pulled out the needle, the needle was bent. We have never seen that before, anyone else? I worry that the cannula is bent too? Won't know for a little while though I guess.

    I would pull the site at the first sign of a high blood sugar. She probably hit something like a muscle or it might have been bent prior to going in.

    This happened just a couple of nights ago with us. The needle dragged over the plastic and bent on it's way out. The site was perfectly fine and has been functioning as usual. I would only pull the site if she had unexpected highs.
