Refill electrodes and replace chest stickers

During your study, you may need to refill electrodes and/or replace your chest stickers.

You will find everything you need in your Take-home Kit. Please note there is a compartment on the right-hand side that contains extra heart stickers and more.

Expand the accordions to learn more.

Refill electrodes (US)

The instructions in this accordion are for patients in the US. If you are in Australia or the UK, open the next accordion.

To refill your electrodes using the refill stick in your Take-home Kit:

1. Take a refill stick from your Take-home Kit. There may be extra refill sticks in the compartment on the right-hand side of your Take-home Kit.

2. Remove the white cap from the syringe and place a green tip onto the stick.

3. Locate the hole in the middle of the electrode.

4. Insert the tip of the refill stick into the hole using medium pressure to break through the WaterTab® – the tip will stop before it reaches the head.

5. Inject 1 dose (0.05mL) of conductive paste. One dose is half the distance between numbers on the side of the refill stick.

7. Repeat for all electrodes that need refilling.

8. Remove the green tip and dispose of it in general waste according to local regulations. Replace the white cap.

Replace chest stickers

Replace chest stickers after you've taken them off to shower, or if they're loose. If the skin under the chest stickers is becoming irritated, contact Seer.

If a chest sticker is loose, press down on it firmly to try to re-adhere it before replacing it entirely.

To replace a chest sticker:

  1. Press a sticker onto a colored connector on the ECG cable. You can use any sticker in any orientation on any colored connector.
  2. Press the sticker and connector onto your chest into the correct position. Match the connector color with the placements in the diagram below.
  3. Repeat for all chest stickers that need replacing.
  4. Tape down any excess slack in the cable in a similar way to the image below with the skin-safe tape provided in the Take-home kit.
