Monitors, Physiologic, Electrocardiography/Vital Signs, Telemetric

Definition : Physiologic monitors designed primarily for automated periodic and/or quasi-continuous real-time measurement and display of information of the electrical activity of the heart and its associated electrocardiogram (ECG) and two or more of the vital signs (e.g., noninvasive blood pressure, temperature, heart rate) and oxygen saturation in the blood (SpO2) taken from a distant location through a point-to-point radio or other appropriate communication link (i.e., telemetric). Telemetric electrocardiography (ECG) monitors typically consist of a small electronic unit connected by several lead wires attached to cardiac electrodes and other physiologic sensors that are usually placed on the patient's skin (e.g., chest) and include a pocket-sized, battery-powered transmitter that is clipped to the patient's gown or carried in a pouch. They also consist of a receiver that is integral or associated to the central station where the information is displayed. Some monitors can also process and display information on other physiologic parameters such as respiration rate and skin temperature. ECG/vital signs telemetric monitors are used primarily in non-critical cardiology, intermediate care, and stress exercise areas of healthcare units and also in cardiac rehabilitation rooms.
