Troubleshooting questions

  • The Cough Test Code does not work for the client or patient.
    • Ensure that the client or patient is correctly inputting the right code provided to them before joining the session. This is a unique one-off code that cannot be reused. If they have already completed the test, the code cannot be used again.
  • The patient has lost the Cough Test Code; how can they find it?
    • If the client or patient joins the same session, the code and instructions will be displayed. If this is a new session, they may be asked to complete the precall questions again to receive a new Cough Test Code. Once the test has been completed, the Cough Test Code will no longer be available.
  • How long is the Cough Test Code valid?
    • The client or patient needs to use the test code within 6 hours. The Analysis Report is available for 2 days after the client or patient has completed the test.
  • What happens if the client or patient puts in the wrong information?
    • The client or patient will need to make a new booking to take the test. 
  • What happens if the Analysis Report is not appearing in the ResAppDx Results menu?
    • You can search for an Analysis Report using the client's or patient's Cough Test Code under Search for Analysis Report.
  • Why can’t I find a test result?
    • The client's or patient’s Analysis Report is only displayed if the test has been completed within the last two days. You may need to try the search again if there are connectivity issues.
