Tips for buying Telemetry Monitor
- When considering the need for additional telemetry monitors, facilities should look closely at the current usage need of the technology, the changes caused to the patient care by adding more transmitters and receivers, and the necessary additional staff and training.
- Facilities can choose from many options for telemetric patient monitoring. They should determine whether telemetry monitoring is the best choice for each individual patient.
- Display should accommodate at least 8 patients per display. For each one, it should show alarm and rhythm status, heart rate, alarm limits, and graphic trending of arrhythmia data. It should also indicate unit status.
- Facilities are encouraged to integrate the ambulatory monitoring system completely with the central station.
- Depending on the monitoring capabilities of the transmitter and user requirements, the central station should display ECG waveforms and other physiologic parameters. ECGs should be trended.
- The antenna system access points should provide uniform coverage over the monitored area. The telemetry monitor system should include all the necessary antennae access points, amplifiers, and couplers. Elementary systems should operate in the WMTS or ISM frequency bands.
- The ambulatory monitor’s transmitter should transmit at least 2 leads; 12-lead diagnostic ECG is optional.
- The central station should include a visible and audible low-battery alarm. A rechargeable battery should require minimal recharging after depletion.
- The telemetry monitor controls should be easy to operate, visible and clearly identified. Their design should prevent misinterpretation of displays and settings. The controls should be protected against accidental setting changes, and sealed to prevent fluid penetration.
- In no case should fluid spills adversely affect the patient and operator's safety or system performance. An affected telemetric patient monitor transmitter should fail safely.
