Quick Question

  1. 0 If a job application asks if you have telemetry experience, do they mean on a unit specifically called a telemetry unit or do they just mean experience with pts on telemetry monitoring? I'm really sorry if this sounds like a dumb question- it's literally just a drop down yes or no, as part of a set of 5 supplementary questions to the main application. I don't want to misrepresent but I also don't want to discount the experience I do have. Thanks.

    In terms of experience, I would take that as specific tele experience- not just putting on the leads. jmho

    Having telemetry experience means you are able to interpret rhythms,and know how to respond appropriately for any changes in cardiac status.

    Experience with cardiac moniters,i.e. interpreting cardiac rhythms- that's what's meant.

    i agree it means you can initiate the leads and interpret rhythms and recognize and know how to treat rhythms.
