Tranmission Triggers, or Tx Triggers, are used in Rhythm360 to classify where a patient's Transmission Report comes from. There are several different Session Triggers, each of which have a different meaning.

Remote Alert: The transmission came from an alert event that was detected within the device. 

Remote: A transmission that is unclassified- if you see a Tx Trigger labeled "Remote" and are unsure of where it originated from, please contact us at

Remote Scheduled: The transmission was sent on a previously scheduled date through the vendor portal.

Patient Initiated: The patient manually sent the transmission themselves. This process is usually done from the patient's home.

CL Express: A Carelink Express transmission -- the transmission was sent from a portable Carelink Express console used to interrogate the patient's implanted device. This process is typically done from an ED/hospital or in the clinic setting.

Initial Setup: The transmission was sent during the process of a patient's monitor or app set up.

Remote Programming: User initiated session to facilitate Remote Programming.  Used when uploading a report and will not be automatically assigned. 

In-Office Alert: The transmission was sent or added from an alert during a patient's office visit.

In-Office Scheduled: The transmission was sent or added during a patient's scheduled office visit.
