Who is the System Administrator and the User in CardioVisions?

The System Administrator’s account is created during the software installation by default. The System Administrator can create and has access to the User’s account, but only the User can see medical data.

My CardioVisions password has been lost.

Login to the software as a System Administrator, whose default login name and password are both admin. As a System Administrator, you can modify the User’s password.

If You cannot login as a System Administrator, the user.FF2 file should be sent back to Meditech to restore default data.

How can I export or import data?

CardioVisions:

1. Exporting several measurements from one folder: Tools/Export examinations from the selected folder.

2. Exporting a single measurement: open the measurement and Tools/Data export.

3. Importing: Tools/Data import or Tools/Import examinations into the selected folder.

EasyABPM: Tools/Export, Tools/Import.

Wrong date and time are displayed in the software.

1. Check the correct PC time, as your device is programmed accordingly.

2. If the backup cell is not properly charged, the internal clock may work incorrectly, and the recorder may not start measurements in due time. In this case keep freshly charged batteries in the recorder for at least one day; this should recharge the backup cell. It is possible to use the recorder afterwards. If the recharging of the cell does not help, the backup cell must be changed by the service personnel. This is an out of warranty act.
