Step 1: Effort Belt
Verify that both snaps on the effort belt are firmly snapped to the SleepView Monitor.
Over clothing, wrap belt using Velcro tabs to secure snugly but comfortably around chest, not too tight to cause discomfort and not so loose that it is falling off. The belt may overlap and wrap around your torso. Pull belt above your chest line so SleepView® is positioned at the center of your chest. Women may wear the belt above or below your breast.
Step 2: Nasal Cannula
Remove the nasal cannula from its plastic packaging
Hold the nasal cannula with both hands so the nasal prongs point up toward your nose. Insert the nasal prongs into your nose. Pull the tubing behind both ears. Push the plastic slide up to tighten the cannula tubes at your chin. Use a bandaid to secure the tube to your cheeks.
Remove the plastic protector from the end of the nasal cannula, and twist the end of the cannula clockwise onto the Cannula connector on SleepView until snug.
Step 3: Pulse Ox
Verify the Pulse OX sensor is fi rmly plugged into SleepView®. You may route the wire through the neck of your shirt and out the sleeve. Remove any nail polish or acrylic nails before testing.
Slide your index finger from either hand into the sensor so the icon of a finger covers your fingernail. Use a bandaid to secure the sensor to the back or your hand. (A bandaid can also be used to secure the sensor to your finger.)
Contact your healthcare provider with any questions.
Press the ON button located on the front of SleepView. The power light should light green..
The lights for each connected sensor should be green.
Green light: A strong signal is being recorded!
Amber light: The sensor needs to be adjusted until green.
Red light: The sensor is not properly attached to SleepView®
Adjust the sensors until the light for each connected sensor is green. Aux Sensor: if the Aux sensor was not provided, the light will remain off.
Sleep in a position that is normal and comfortable for you. Try to spend some time on your back as sleep apnea can be worse in that position.
In the morning, press and hold OFF button (if power light is already turned off, turn it ON and then OFF). Lights circling clockwise in green means a good study was recorded. If the lights circle counter-clockwise in red, call your healthcare provider as you may need to retake the test the next evening..
Discard cannula in trash. Return the SleepView™ Kit to your healthcare provider.
In case of a medical emergency call 911.
CAUTION: Improper routing of leads may result in a choking hazard. Do not use in conjunction with an external defibrillator. Immediately contact your healthcare provider if you encounter any problems with the SleepView Monitor or accessories.
