• Test results are sent to your doctor. Your doctor will share the results
with you.
• If a pad comes loose, remove it. Clean your skin with a damp washcloth.
Place a new pad on after your skin dries. Pull the wire off the old pad
and snap it onto the new pad. Write this in your notes.
• If a wire comes off, look at the picture on the back of the monitor. The
wires are color-coded. Look at the picture and put the wire back on in
the area in the picture. Write this in your notes.
• If you drop the monitor, open it by pulling it apart. Check to make sure it
is still running. If it is NOT running, push the “release button”. You will
hear the monitor start.

Talk to your doctor or nurse if you have any questions or concerns.
