The Global Infusion Sets Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).
An infusion set carries insulin from the pump to the body. It includes the tubing and the part that is inserted into the subcutaneous fat, right under the skin. This can either be a very small plastic tube, called a cannula or a stainless steel needle.
Infusion sets that have cannulas have a needle that is used to insert it, but that needle is removed once the cannula is in place. The stainless steel needle, however, stays in the body while the infusion set is being used. Whether the infusion set uses a cannula or a needle, it must be changed every three days.
There are two types of infusion sets: straight or angled. Straight sets are inserted at a 90-degree angle. Angled sets are inserted at a 30-degree angle. Some of the sets come with insertion devices, while others must be inserted manually.
Infusion sets are a crucial part of successful pump therapy as they must provide constant insulin delivery. A crimped cannula, for example, can interrupt delivery and result in dangerously high blood sugars and ketone formation.
