What is “Live” Telemetry Monitoring?
“Live” Telemetry is a way of monitoring a patient’s heart rhythm over the cellphone network for to 30 days. The patient wears a small cardiac monitor around the waist that has only 3-4 electrodes attached to various areas of the chest.
Why is Telemetry Monitoring used?
Telemetry Monitoring enables the doctor evaluate irregular heart rhythms and identify patients that are potentially at high risk. This test is done while the patient is continuing with their normal daily activity using cellular technology automatically sending data for evaluation. Daily strips and emergent results are sent to the physician.
