Hook up pib
The PIB and loose electrode wires and sensor cables were supported by a cloth “bib/vest” with the recording unit placed in the center pocket.
This bib/vest was placed over the participants nightclothes.
There was no ability to set a high filter (low band pass) at acquisition; signal collection began at the mechanical low filter start-up (0.15 or 0.05) and continued to collect without a frequency cut-off.
"It's that asshole in the blue's bachelor party," jokes one of them, pointing to the guy across the street.After collection the study would be downloaded to a computer via serial lead, battery recharged and flash card reformatted.The Compumedics P-series Sleep Monitoring systems used for SHHS1 were prototype units that were refined and modified by Compumedics during study collection and there were proprietary function algorithms that were not always shared by the company engineers.The PIB connected to the Main Unit using an analogue cable and signals were recorded in digitized format onto a solid-state memory device (PCMCIA Memory Card) in the Main Unit.
The montage was set up so that only 2.01 Mb/hr of data was recorded, providing 10 hours of data for the 20 Mb flashcards which were used.Merit Medical’s PIB-pressure infusor bag has a dual-pressure safety valve that switches between normal and over-pressure mode with a click of a button.
