medtronic pumps

  1. Does any RN fill medtronic pumps? Learning to do so and the patient I have is a difficult one. In the past they have had to fill her under fluoro. Any tricks/suggestions to make it smoother. Have had the companys inservice but she is a very difficult stick.

    luvrn,
    All I can tell ya is that it takes practice and a good eye...had one pt I kidded that he needed a tatoo over the fill port..."x" marks the spot...
    this guy was rather obese and flouro was not an option...was done in his home...wish I had some sort of solution for ya...I know how you feel...
