Monitors, Central Station
Definition : Monitors designed to be positioned in a central location, usually at a nurses' station; they typically consolidate information (e.g., audible and visual alarms) from individual bedsides and/or telemetry monitors. These monitors usually display an electrocardiogram for each patient being monitored; they include computing capabilities and additional displays to observe trend information; some also include full-disclosure capabilities. Central station monitors are used for full remote monitoring of patients in one or more areas of a healthcare facility; however, they do not replace bedside monitors.
