Cardiac Patient Monitor:- A Patient Cardiac Monitor is an electronic medical device that consists of one of more monitoring sensors, a processing component(s), and a screen display (also called a "monitor") that provide and record for medical professionals a patient's medical vital signs (body temperature, blood pressure, pulse rate and respiratory rate) or measurements of the activity of various body organs such as ECG monitors, anesthesia monitors, or EKG monitors.
The Cardiac Monitor is a tool that displays the cardiovascular system's electrical and pressure waveforms for assessment and care. It is also possible to measure specific parameters of respiratory function. Because there are electrical connections between the heart monitor and the patient, they are kept at the bedside of the patient.
The Cardiac monitor shows the cardiac electrocardiogram (EKG) tracing on a continuous basis. Additional monitoring components allow the monitoring and display of cardiovascular pressure and cardiac output as needed for diagnosis and treatment of patients.Arterial blood oxygen saturation can also be monitored on an ongoing basis. The bedside monitor can be interconnected to allow continuous observation of several patients from a central display, most commonly used in emergency rooms and critical care areas. Continuous cardiac and pulmonary monitoring makes it possible to detect and start care promptly.The monitor displays many patient parameters visually. If any parameter changes outside of the expected range determined by the doctor, it can be set to sound an alarm. Requirements to be controlled may include, but not limited to, electrocardiogram, non-invasive blood pressure, intravascular pressure, cardiac rate, saturation of arterial blood oxygen, and blood temperature.
