Alarm Text Message on e-pill CADEX Watch
(up to 36 letters long)
Improve Patient Compliance
If you take multiple medications at a given time, we recommend you abbreviate if necessary ('MORNING MEDS') or use a reference ('BLUE PILLBOX'). You may also want to set alarms to remind you to perform a certain test daily ('GLUCOSE'), or to perform a specific exercise or task ('DO HOMEWORK').
TEXT alarm Message TIP-1: If you are normally away from home during the day, we recommend you make an alarm for the early part of the day that says 'SETUP MEDS'.
You should set this alarm for the time that you are normally doing your morning routine (breakfast, coffee, etc.), this will remind you to get your medications together and into your pocket or purse so you will not forget them.
TEXT alarm Message TIP-2: You may create one or several TEXT-ALARM ahead of time for reminders often used (but not used every day). Maximum number of alarms is twelve. We call this an Alarm Menu.
How to use the Alarm Menu: Example 'LAB TEST' performed every Thursday. Since each alarm can be individually turned ON and OFF you simply scroll to today's message (LAB TEST) and turn it on (symbol appears above ALn) and if necessary change the time for this alarm (your CADEX alarm watch retains the alarm time from the last time each alarm was used).
CHARACTERS: The following letters (characters) are available for ALARM TEXT MESSAGES (in the ALARM BANK) and for use in the DATA BANK on the e-pill CADEX alarm watch:
