Description: Patient monitors are crucial devices for the health and medical stability of any patient in a doctor’s care. Whether it be a hospital setting or a clinic setting, monitoring your patients’ vitals is an absolute must.
Patient Monitors Overview
Patient monitoring models range in price from extremely affordable to extremely expensive. This depends on how many parameters you want to monitor at once, the age of the monitor itself (if purchasing refurbished), and the manufacturer (if you have a preference).
There are numerous instances in which a medical professional would need to use a medical monitor. This includes any hospital, clinic, outpatient, ASC, conscious sedation, respiratory therapy, intensive care, recovery rooms, radiology, cath labs, and more.
They are vital for keeping tabs on such things as breathing (respiration), heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation rates — among other monitoring parameters.
Many models of patient monitors are available on the market today from manufacturers including:
- Basic Vital Signs
- Cow (Capnography
From manufacturers such as:
- Mindray / Datascope
Patient and vital signs monitoring devices have come a long way in design style from their inception. In the beginning, there were no portable models available and the number of vital signs a machine could monitor was much more limited. Today, however, manufacturers have used the latest design technology coupled with the latest in medical technology to bring medical professionals almost countless models of monitors to choose from.
