3 Headache Checklist™ User’s Guide Release 6.0 Overview and Intended Use The Headache CheckList™ is not a medical device and administration of the CheckList is not a diagnosis. Individuals using the Headache CheckList™ as an assessment aid should not attempt to make evaluations outside of their professional competency. The Headache CheckList™ is intended for use as an aid in collecting self-report information on an individual’s headache related experiences as part of the assessment of headache complaints. The Headache CheckList™ is simply a list of yes or no questions which a patient can complete at their own pace in a private setting. A checklist report can be created after a patient completes a checklist. The report lists the questions to which the patient answered yes (endorsed). NeuroDynamix™ Software Environment NeuroDynamix™ serves as a common interface for a range of software applications from Zynex® NeuroDiagnostics, allowing the user to select the connected instrument, enter clinic and clinician information, create patient records, and select patient records to review. Headache CheckList™ is installed as part of the NeuroDynamix™ software package. If the Headache CheckList™ is the only desired application within the NeuroDynamix™ software package, the other applications may be disregarded, and their shortcuts may be deleted from the desktop System Requirements Headache CheckList™ 6.0 software is compatible with WindowsXP, and Windows7. Software & Hardware Installation Headache CheckList™ is installed with the NeuroDynamix™ Setup package. This is installed by double clicking the NeuroDynamix™6.0_Setup….exe file and following the prompts. Note, this installer will install all NeuroDynamix™ applications, and therefore a shortcut for each application will be placed on the desktop. Unwanted NeuroDynamix™ shortcuts may be removed from the desktop by simply delete them. See the NeuroDynamix™ Installation Instructions for further details.

4 Note1: Some computers have administrative restrictions on installing or uninstalling software. Admin rights are required to install and run NeuroDynamix 6.0. If you are not the administrator of your computer, contact the administrator to obtain proper administrative rights. Note2: The software must be registered within 15 days of install. If not registered, the software will stop working. Contact Zynex® NeuroDiagnostics for registration code. Note3: You are responsible for protecting your client’s private information.

5 Overview of Administering a Checklist Selecting a Patient Headache Checklist™ requires selection of a Current Patient before running a checklist. Select a patient by selecting the [Select Patient] button which opens the Select Current Patient screen. • Select [Select Patient] from the main menu screen. • Select a patient name from the list. • Select the [Select] button. • Select the [Return to Main Menu] button. Headache CheckList™ uses patient data common to other NeuroDynamix™ applications. If the patient is already entered into the system, this step may be skipped. Administering the CheckList • Select the Administer CheckList button on the Main Menu screen. • The patient should select [Yes] if an item correctly describes their headache experience – [No] if it does not. • The [Back] button allows back-up to earlier items to change answers. • [Stop] terminates the administration and saves items answered so far. Administration may be resumed at another time. • When all items have been answered, a prompt will appear that explains that administration is complete.

6 Reports • Select the Reports button on the Main Menu screen. The Report Template settings at the bottom of the screen define what is included in the report. The default setting creates a report using the Standard Report template. • The Extended option includes a listing of the CheckList items in the report. • The Custom report template interface allows you to edit or completely replace the standard text and create new template options. • Once the desired Report Template options have been selected, Highlight the patient / session of interest and select [Generate Report].

7 Report Viewer The Report Viewer provides a range of options: • The [Print] button provides the ability to print without use of a word processor. • The [Open in Word] option provides access to editing features of MS Word or similar word processor and provides the most attractive formatting options for a printed report. This option can be used to enter clinical comments or additional information about the patient before printing. • The [Save As] option allows saving the report to a specific location. (The report data has already been saved; it is not necessary to select this option to save the source data.) • Select [Close] to exit. Creating Custom Report Templates Selecting the Custom option under Report Templates gives access to the template interface. This interface allows editing of existing templates or creation of new templates. The template inserts standard text blocks into the report (as shown above). This text can be edited or replaced by alternate text.

8 Administering a CheckList to an Existing Patient To administer a CheckList to an exiting patient, select the [Select Patient] button from the main menu. Two methods are provided for finding existing patient records. The List method screen is shown above. Patients may be listed by Name, ID Number, or other variables using the Sort List by setting. Confidentiality settings are available to mask Patient Name and other variables using the confidentiality settings under System Options. The [Change to Search Method] button in the upper right provides an alternative to the listing screen. The Search method allows selection of records by entering a Patient Name, ID, or file number. The Search method can be set to be the default interface; go to System Options, Confidentiality Settings to do this. To Select a Patient from the List: • From the main menu, select the [Select Patient] button. (This will bring up the screen shown above.) • Highlight the desired record. • Select the [Select] button to make this the active record. • Select [Return to Main Menu] to run a scan. “Richard Smithfield”is a demonstration patient record that comes with the system. This record may be used to run test scans.

The system defaults to this setting. • If password protection is activated for Patient Management, the password screen will appear anytime the Patient Management interface is selected. • Access is gained by entering {password entered during set up} in the dialog box and selecting [OK].
