As a new patient, it is important to get familiar with your new routine. When seeing your doctor, it is good to prepare any questions and concerns you might have to help you feel more comfortable with your new treatment set-up.
Before doing the infusion alone at home, you must have sufficient training from your healthcare professional to ensure you feel comfortable with the procedure.
Some of the issues you should discuss with your healthcare professional:
- Carry your infusion sets in your hand luggage in case your luggage is delayed or missing.
- Remember to carry spare infusion sets for your holidays.
- If you use infusion sets while you are awake, consider using an infusion set with a disconnect option at site. This will give you more flexibility for your daily activities.
