Version 1.1

Release date: November 12  2021


Introduction

This user manual is developed for clinicians who are responsible for remote monitoring of patients using the Levvel.connect. 

The user manual has been written in a way that is thorough and understandable. In addition to this manual, user training is provided. All clinicians must either read this entire user manual or take the training provided before using Levvel.connect. 

Intended use of Levvel.connect software

Levvel.connect is a software platform for Remote Patient monitoring. It consists of two integrated parts:

  • The clinician portal, a web application 

  • Patient interface, a mobile device application 

Through the mobile device application, patients can enter and follow their health data, and answer questions on their well-being. The clinician portal enables the healthcare team to monitor patients’ vital signs and follow disease development.

This combination of objective data and subjective responses enables the healthcare team to make informed, timely care decisions for better outcomes.

Indication for Use

Levvel.connect is an informational tool only. It is not to be used as a substitute for professional judgement of healthcare providers in diagnosing and treating patients.

Levvel.connect is indicated for use by patients and by healthcare professionals for collection and review of data from patients who are capable and willing to engage in the use of Remote Patient Monitoring.

The flexibility of the system allows the healthcare team to design and distribute individual or generic electronic questionnaires. It is furthermore possible to add threshold values for reference when reviewing reported data in the web application.

The Levvel.connect software must be configured by clinical users in order to be utilised to collect data as described above. The software does not in itself provide any protocols or procedures to obtain data from patients.

Levvel.connect does not provide any real time alerts and is not intended to provide automated treatment decisions or diagnosis.

CTG measurements

The option to record continuous CTGs is presented to the patient as a separate menu. The menu is only displayed for patients who are in a patient group that has continuous CTGs activated (see screenshot).


Remarks

CTG measurements can be captured in two ways: as continuous CTGs or as questionnaire-based CTGs. Continuous CTG acts as a stream, the patient begins to record, and the CTG data is displayed in the external viewer after a short delay. The measurement continues until the patient stops the measurement. Questionnaire-based CTGs are discrete measurements. They are captured as part of a questionnaire result. The patient starts his questionnaire and registers a CTG as with any other measurement.

For continuous CTGs, the patient selects which setting of uterine activity sensitivity to use on the Monica AN24 device (see the user documentation for the AN24 device for the correct setting for use).

Once recording has been started by the patient, a "Continuous CTG" column will appear below the "Completed Questionnaires" view below that patient. "Continuous CTG" cell shows which sensitivity setting the patient has selected.

Normally, the measurement continues until the patient stops it, but there may be circumstances where the system actively stops the measurement.

This can occur in two circumstances:

Slow network connection (or no connection) between the patient tablet and the server means that data delivery cannot keep up with measurement data.

Slow network connection (or no connection) between the server and the remote CTG viewer means that data delivery cannot keep up with measurement data. In either case, there is some leeway to prevent intermittent network problems from preventing a measurement from being performed. In both cases, the patient will be informed that the measurement has stopped due to network problems.

Questionnaire-based CTGCTG Questionnaire-based is collected

in the same way as all other measurements. A CTG-type measurement node is added to a questionnaire and that questionnaire is assigned to the patient. The patient will then be asked to perform a CTG measurement as part of this questionnaire.

Once the patient has completed the questionnaire, it becomes visible in the "Completed Questionnaires" view. The measurement is transferred to an external viewer. You can see the possible status of the transfer below:
