Pouches, Telemetry

Definition : Pouches in which a battery-powered portable telecommunication transmitter attached to an ambulatory patient may be carried. These pouches are typically plastic or fabric containers with appropriate means of attachment (e.g., a belt, a shoulder strap) to the patient. The transmitter in the pouch is connected to sensors (e.g., lead wires with electrodes for electrocardiography) on the patient's body and to a small antenna that transmits the signal to a remote receiving antenna. The antenna is linked to a central station monitor, where the patient's physiologic parameters are displayed. Telemetry pouches are used mainly in hospitals to facilitate physiologic parameter monitoring of patients who are not in critical condition but who require continuous monitoring.
