At Advanced Care Hospital of Montana, we are pleased to offer our patients the latest in long term acute care technology. This allows us to enhance our patients’ treatment options and results.
A telemetry monitor is a portable box that attaches to a patient, displaying the heart rate and rhythm at a central station. By using telemetry monitoring, our nurses and technicians can continually monitor a patient’s heart rate and rhythm to keep his or her doctor informed. The monitor sends an alarm when it detects an abnormal rhythm and prints out a strip of that rhythm so the doctor can review it. The alarm also alerts our nurses of critical situations so they can take immediate action.
