Saving Data

Submitted by Sally on Tue, 08/12/2008 - 10:53am

Can anyone explain to me how to save each IOP data collected for the day? I have had to save all the data at the end of the day because I have not been able to get the Serial Watcher program to add the newest data to that saved earlier in the day. It does not seem to work like Word, Excel or PowerPoint. Is there a way to save data each time it is collected, under the same file name?

brackets and asterisks

I want to be certain that I understand the AT555 readings when I take my pressures. I always do 3 readings per eye so the device can calculate the average. Then I use the average number as my IOP for that time. Sometimes, I get asterisks and brackets (fliers) so I continue testing that eye until I have 3 clean numbers. Then I use the average of those numbers.

Daily data collection

I understand that the AT555 should be connected to the computer for data collection. I do not work out of my home, so I am away from home, at my office most of the day. What is recommended for data collection in a case like this? I do have a computer at work and at home, but it would be difficult to transport the tonometer to and from work every day, making the computer connections, etc. How do others handle situations like this?

Expect the Unexpected

Most of us expect that our intraocular pressure might be higher if we are feeling stress or we are under pressure of some type. We also expect that our intraocular pressure will be lower when we do a relaxing activity such as watching TV or a movie, going to a party with friends, or having dinner with family. And we especially expect that our intraocular pressure will be lower after we perform a stress reduction technique such as meditation or yoga.
