Monitoring Systems, Physiologic

Definition : Monitoring systems designed for continuous assessment of vital physiologic parameters. These systems usually include a central station monitor that receives, consolidates, and displays the information and a set of monitors that are deployed near the patient (bedside monitors) to provide the required data from each patient; many systems also include portable radio transmitters (with appropriate sensors), receivers, and antennas (telemetry systems) to allow monitoring of ambulatory patients. Physiologic monitoring systems are used to evaluate and observe trends in patients in compromised or unstable conditions; they are used mostly in intermediate care units and in general medical and surgical areas. Additionally, some systems can assess conditions that are vital for patient life (e.g., anesthetic gas concentrations).
