FAQ How do I start the device/sleep study?
The system has been programmed by your doctor to automatically turn on at the time you have agreed. It is therefore not necessary for you to press any buttons on your device.
How can I tell if the device is working and the study has started?
You will see a red LED eminating from the finger clip.
I forgot the time that the device is supposed to turns on, how can I check it?
Press the power button on the device. An screen will then appear telling you in how many minutes until the device turns on.
Is it normal for the display to be dark - it looks like it is not working?
Yes, the display is swtiched off by default, so you will not be disturbed at night. It also saves the battery.
I have a pacemaker? Should I wear the device on my chest?
Put the device on your stomach instead of on your chest. The abdominal belt can then be applied around the chest instead.
If you have to do a study with electrodes that are applied to your head and eyes (EEG measurement), please contact your doctor.
What if I did not set up the device in time and the measurement is already running?
For the examination, only the ´time in bed´ is relevant, so its perfectly ok if you put on the device before you go to bed.
Do you have questions about your clinical appointment or the sleep study itself?
Please contact your doctor. The SOMNOmedics hotline can only help you with questions about the device or the application of the sensors.
