is the most practical way to schedule medications. Alarms can be set to co-incide with meal times, school or work times, bed time etc. Missing or delaying one event (alarm time) will NOT change the subsequent alarms.

vs Interval Timers.
: With an Interval Timer the alarm will go off once the pre-set interval has elapsed. The interval can be set in Hours and Minutes.
Example: If you set an Interval Timer for 8 hours and start it at 8:00 AM the alarms would go off at 8 AM, 4 PM and Midnight.
If one alarm is missed on the Interval Timer
, subsequent alarms will be moved ahead (which in not desirable for most patients).
