Please note the below specifications for the use of the Cubeholter software, have been taken directly from the Cardioline Cubeholter user manual.
With these requirements in mind we have chosen to use a Windows Surface 2 laptop with Windows 10 for the purposes of this blog.
Cubeholter software install
Within your Cardioline package you should have received a software package box, in here you should see an orange and silver USB stick like the picture below
Plug this into your computer or laptop and follow these easy steps to install the Cubeholter software. If you are using the CD to install Cubeholer, the steps should be almost similar
Once you plug the USB into your device the following window should automatically open (if this does not happen, automatically open your folders and click on the USB drive highlighted by the grey bar on the left hand side of the screen)
Click on the icon to open up the Cubeholter application.
Setting up a patient for a Holter test using Cubeholter
At the end of the last section we asked you to open the Cubeholter App, if you haven't already got the app open please do so now.
You will need all of the following for setting up a patient and sending them off for a holter test. The product crossed out will be used in the next section.
For this step please remove the battery from the back on the Clickholter (this needs to be done when setting up every new patient, so please get used to removing the battery when setting up a new patient), otherwise the test data will not transfer to the unit when the battery is in.
Connect the USB cable to the Clickholter and plug it into your computer
Now you've got your Clickholter plugged into the USB port of your computer correctly, you should see the above appear on the screen of your Clickholter. If you do not see this on the display screen, simply turn your device back on by the orange button above the Cardioline logo.
Upon opening up the Cubeholter App you will see the following screen.
Removing your device correctly will ensure you are not potentially corrupting the device or the integrity of the cables ability to transfer data.
The below diagram can be found in the Cardioline Clickholter user manual. This is the lead placement for a 5 wire patient which we used for this demonstration.
Once the patient is connected to the cables, follow these steps to activate the device to start its recording period.
If you have made it this far without any issues, cables are secured, the screen is blacked out and the light is intermittently flashing blue then you can confidently send the patient away.
Downloading patient for analysis purposes
Please note we are not demonstrating the use of the software USB key in this blog, we are only assisting you in how to effectively use the Clickholter and Cubeholter software.
Once your patient has returned from their Holter test, please do the following to download the information. Make sure you have detached the patient cables and attached the USB cable to the device and plugged it into your computer.
This is when we will need the software USB key.
Plug this into your computer. Please note you don't need to have the orange USB plugged in every time you open CubeHolter. This software is saved on your device once you install it. Open up Cubeholter to download the data.
Below, is what the software USB key allows you to do after a Holter test. We have just provided these photos as a reference point so you can be sure you're on the right path. If you need to understand the analysis software more please revert to the Cubeholter WS user manual for a more in depth explanation.
