Infusion Sets

Infusion set is a sleek plastic tube that helps in delivering insulin into the body. These tubings are available in different lengths to fulfil different requirements of patients with varied health conditions. At the end of this tube is a stainless steel needle or a soft and flexible cannula. This cannula or needle is inserted into your body at a suitable site (ex. Abdomen, buttocks or thighs). This site is known as the infusion site. The insulin infusion set can remain in place for 2-3 days. If it remains in place for longer there are chances of occlusions causing blockage in the tube or chances of infections. Infusion set is the part of an insulin pump that is used for insulin therapy.
