Last night I inserted a new Dexcom sensor into my 8 year old's upper arm. I pinched up the skin, like I always do, and inserted the needle and then removed it. As soon as I removed the inserter I noticed blood seeping from under the site. Before I could pull the site out there was blood dripping down her arm and onto the floor. There was probably 1 to 2 tsp. of blood. Her arm stopped bleeding quickly with some pressure but I am perplexed as to why this happened.
Anyone else experience this? I have a call out to my Dexcom trainer but haven't heard back from her yet.
