Now it’s time to fit the respiratory bands which will measure breathing effort throughout the night.

In doing this, we will also position the recording device (the SOMNOtouch) to the middle of the chest where the gyroscope in the SOMNOtouch will log positional data, which is very useful for sleep physicians.

For this reason, it will be important to try to keep the SOMNOtouch in the centre of the chest as much as can be helped during the night.

​This video offers a useful guide for fitting the straps (00:36 to 01:30).

*the video instructions for fitting the nasal cannula and pulse oximeter are also useful, however we’re not quite up to those steps yet. But soon!
