INSTALLATION
[The following is contained in README.TXT within the zip file.]

– First, you'll need to Unzip with WinZip. –

Copy the files EKGSS.SCR and RHYTHMS.DLL to the "Windows" directory (e.g., \windows) of Microsoft Windows 3.1/95. From the Windows "Control Panel" (in "Main" group), run the "Desktop" setup applet. From the "Name" list box under the "Screen Saver" section, select "EKG". If "EKG" does not appear in the list, the files have not been correctly copied to the Windows directory.

N.B. Windows MUST be able to locate RHYTHMS.DLL in order for the screen saver to work.

CONFIGURATION
To configure the software, select the "Setup" button under the "Screen Saver" section. You can specify the prognosis for each of five patients. Or you can just instruct the software to select a "random" rhythm for each patient.

Select "Color highlight tracings" to enable color syntax highlighting of the various rhythms. The colors range as follows:

  • GREEN: normal condition
  • PURPLE: not normal condition, but no intervention required
  • YELLOW: abnormal condition, intervention required
  • RED: life-threatening condition

    Select "Erase screen after sweep" to blank the screen after each complete screen sweep. Select this option if you are to employ the software for screen saver purposes for any length of time. Note, however, that the software is NOT intended for use as a screen saver over long periods of time.

    Finally, "Password Protect" and "Set Password" options are provided for password protecting the screen saver. Their use is self evident.
