Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the intended use of the Strados RESP?

The Strados RESP is a wearable electronic stethoscope intended for the periodic recording of lung sounds. It is intended for medical diagnostic purposes only. It can be used on patients five years of age and older.

What does the device collect?

The Strados Wearable Device sits on the patient’s chest wall and passively records the patient’s lung sounds.

Will the RESP system work with my mobile device?

The Strados RESP system is compatible with Android mobile devices running the Android v5.0 and higher operating systems. It is also compatible with iOS devices.

How does the Strados Wearable Device (SWD) communicate with the mobile device?

The Strados Wearable Device synchronizes recorded patient data to a mobile device over Bluetooth. Ensure that your mobile device is Bluetooth enabled with v4.1 or higher, and that this functionality is enabled before attempting to use the RESP.

How do I set up the system?

The Strados RESP is designed for easy setup and use. First, simply un-package the system, and set up the Strados Charging Station on a flat surface at least 1.5m from the patient.  Connect the wall adapter to the Strados Charging Station (SCS) and connect it to a wall outlet. Next, place the Strados Wearable Devices (SWD) into the wireless charging bins.

While charging, download and install the Strados Mobile App from the Google Play store on an Android mobile device. Once the charging station indicates that the SWD is charged, remove it, and press the button to power it on. Pair the SWD with the mobile device through the Strados app, then create a user account and a patient record.

Disinfect the SWD then apply it to a patient using the Strados Patient Adhesive or hold it against the patient by hand. The system is now ready to record. It is important to set up and use the system away from pets and small children. Please refer to the Instructions for Use or the Quick-Start guide for more detailed instructions and additional warnings and precautions before using the system.

How do I create a user account with the Strados Mobile App?

A new user can easily create a new account by selecting “Create” on the login screen. The app will guide you through the account creation process, and then ask you to verify the account through your email.

How do I create a patient record with the Strados Mobile App?

A user can quickly set up a patient record by tapping the pencil icon next to the patient name on the dashboard screen. The Strados Mobile App will present a list of patients, and an ADD NEW PATIENT button. Select that button and the app will guide you through the rest of the process.

How is the Strados Wearable Device attached to the patient?

The only way that the SWD is safely and effectively adhered to the patient is by the provided Strados Patient Adhesive (SPA) provided in the RESP kit. No alternative methods should be attempted. To order additional SPA, navigate to www.stradoslabs.com or contact us at sales@stradoslabs.com

What part of the body is the Strados Wearable Device applied to?

Strados recommends applying the Strados Wearable Device (SWD) to the lower chest cavity as indicated by the instructions for use. A clinician should use a stethoscope prior to application to determine the optimal and appropriate location to monitor lung sounds.

How long will the battery last?

The Strados Wearable Device is designed to have a battery life of approximately 16 hours. The device is rechargeable and takes 2-3 hours to fully recharge before the next wear.

Where do I order replacement patient adhesives?

To order additional SPA, navigate to stradoslabs.com.

How do I listen to a patient recording?

Once a recording has been made, it will be wirelessly transferred to the mobile device. The patient recording can be listened to after the transfer is complete by accessing the menu icon and selecting the “Recordings” screen. This will list all the recordings for the selected patient in reverse chronological order. Simply select a recording and the triangular play icon to listen to it.

How do I make sure I get the best recording possible?

Strados recommends that all patient recordings be made in an environment that has 60 dBA or less of ambient noise. This means that an ideal environment would be away from TVs, radios, loud groups of people, or other sources of ambient noise. Additionally, all talking should be kept to a minimum while the device is recording.

Will the device record my conversations?

The Strados Wearable Device utilizes a microphone, so conversations and other room sounds may be recorded. Additionally, nearby conversations may be recorded as well. The SWD will flash an indicator light at the start of a recording. Finally, the Strados algorithms are designed to filter out background noise to isolate patient lung sounds for the most effective clinical use. Regardless, all individuals in the vicinity of the patients should be made aware of the SWD’s recording capability.

How do I delete a recording?

The Strados Wearable Device utilizes a microphone, so conversations and other room sounds may be recorded. Additionally, nearby conversations may be recorded as well. The SWD will flash an indicator light at the start of a recording. Finally, the Strados algorithms are designed to filter out background noise to isolate patient lung sounds for the most effective clinical use. Regardless, all individuals in the vicinity of the patients should be made aware of the SWD’s recording capability.

How private and secure are patient recordings?

The Strados system has designed to be HIPAA compliant. All sensitive patient data is encrypted when stored and transferred between the Strados wearable device and the Mobile App. Patient data can only be accessed and played back by from within the app or the Strados Clinician Portal. Furthermore, the Mobile App is designed so that no patient data is user-accessible on the mobile device. Finally, only users with validated accounts and passwords can access recordings.
