    Okay so yesterday at the cardiologist I was given a heart telemetry unit to Moniter my heart for 2 weeks. The general set up is a sticky patch and then there's a square Moniter that attaches to it and then wirelessly reports to the galaxy s3 phone that comes with it. Needless to say I got zero sleep last night. Everytime I would role over it would drop to 25% connection and start buzzing or it would fall off and buzz...I mean the thing got no where close to an accurate read and I got absolutely no sleep. Any tips on where to place the sticky patch with your experience that did well...I'm a stomach sleeper so this is just a bear. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Icky, I do not have much to help you. Could you call your doctors office and ask a nurse? Maybe tonight will be better just due to exhaustion

    I agree with calling to ask! Hopefully they will be willing to work with you so they can get good readings. They may be able to put the sticky patch on your back or side.
