  • Step 2: Clean the skin with an alcohol wipe to disinfect it. Then let the area air-dry before going ahead.
  • Step 3: Now remove the lid of the sensor pack by peeling it off and remove the cap from the sensor applicator. Match the dark marks on the applicator and pack by pressing the applicator down. Put it on a flat surface until it stops, then lift it to take it off the pack.
  • Step 4: Put the sensor in place by putting the applicator over the cleaned spot and pressing it down. Then, remove the applicator from the arm and make sure the sensor is secure.
