Monitors, Physiologic, Pulse Rate, Personal

Definition : Monitors designed for continuous measurement and display of the number of rhythmic expansions (pulsations) of an artery per minute (i.e., pulse rate in beats per minute) that are intended for personal use. These monitors consist of a small main electronic unit that is worn by the patient (e.g., placed around the wrist, carried in a pouch) that includes electronic circuits; a display; and appropriate sensors for measuring the required physiologic parameters. The monitor may include audible and/or visual alarms that are triggered when the patient's pulse rate drops below or exceeds preset limits. Personal pulse rate monitors are used for personal self-monitoring during daily activities and/or when performing exercises.
