Your ALBA Digital Holter uses a standard SD or CF flash card.When you insert your flash card in a properly installed card reader and look at the files on that card, you will notice there is only one file on each Holter card called “flash.dat”.The concept of online Holter transmission is to get us this file (the 24-hour recording), and also the patient demographics and other important information.We use a file transfer company called HIGHTAIL for this file transfer.Please note that the Holter file is too large to email, and this is why we need to use this online transfer company.There are no fees for you; this has been paid for by ALBA Medical.
Before you transmit –Register your credit card on shop.albamedical.com. If your credit card is already on file with us you can skip this step. You will see a 1 cent charge, but your card will not actually be charged. You must do this to prevent a delay in getting your report scanned.
You will see a message that says “Drag files here to share or pick from your computer.”
You can “drag” the flash.dat file from your Holter chip to the box, or you can click “computer” to open a browser. With the browser, find your flash drive (e: or f: or similar) and then choose the file recorded on it (flash.dat).
Enter your Full Name
Enter your Email (this is where your report will be emailed to)
Enter Message= Enter the dog’s Name, Age, Breed, and any notes you want to tell us about the recording period. Also indicate if we have your credit card on file for the $30 charge. If your card is not on file with us please register your card on shop.albamedical.com.
Click “UPLOAD”. The file will then be sent over to us in a matter of minutes.
Please note: Do not erase the flash card using “My Computer” or “Windows Explorer”.If the flash.dat file is not present, the Holter will not function.Leave your card full.The next time you are hooking up another patient, insert the card, and the Holter will prompt you to erase the card.
