Step 5: Graph Setup
The Graph Setup allows you to create customized graph windows that are displayed during Acquisition and Review. Up to sixteen graph windows may be created. Depending on the display selected, the graph windows will display raw input signals (Primary and Page View graphs) or derived parameters (Trend, XY-Loop, and Scatter graphs). The graph configurations can be changed any time during the Experiment Setup, Acquisition, or Review.
The Graph Setup is accessed from the Ponemah main menu: Setup | Experiment Setup… When the Setup dialog appears, select Graph Setup from the list on the left.
Once Subjects are defined, Ponemah can automatically set up graphs to display the signals being collected per Subject.
To autoconfigure graphs:
- From the Setup menu, choose Experiment Setup…
- Choose Graph Setup.
- Select the desired Arrange by button; choose Yes when prompted.
Arrange by Subject
Selecting this button will enable Primary Graph pages and configure one Subject per page, up to 16 Subjects. If more than 16 Subjects exist, the Primary Graph will be configured to display two Subjects per page. Graph titles, labels, units, and high/low axis values will also be configured based on the Subject settings. Graph titles will be populated with Subject Names, while Labels will be populated with Channel Label.
Arrange by Signal:
Selecting this button will enable Primary Graph pages and configure each page to a specific Channel Signal, up to 16 Channels per page; e.g. the ECG Channels from all Subjects will be assigned to the same graph page. Graph titles, labels, units, and high/low axis values will also be configured based on the Channel settings. Graph titles will be populated with Channel Name, while Labels will be populated with Subject Names.
In the example above, Arrange by Subject was selected resulting in Page 1 displaying all channels from Subject Rat01.
