telemetry_monitorThe Need
Internal Medicine wards are notoriously the most crowded in all hospitals. Nurses working these wards are beset every minute by patient needs. The necessity for keeping a watchful eye on the cardiac condition of the patients takes up a significant portion of the nurse’s time.

The 8-patient telemetry cardiac monitor enables the duty nurse to watch the vita of up to 8 patients from a single station.

It has the highest quality of arrhythmia detection and, importantly, data storage for 96 hours of full disclosure ECG for all patients, including arrhythmia recall and alarm history.
