What's the name of the ECG thingy that nurses put on a lot of peds patients? - Page 2Register Today!

- Mar 10 by akulahawkI've seen 12/15-lead units that are no bigger than typical 3-lead units. Unless there's a possibility of MI, you normally don't need to use the 12 or 15 lead monitoring. What they're normally "looking" for is rate and rhythm changes when a patient is on an EKG monitor. What's the difference to the patient? A whole lot of wires and a whole lot of medical stability... The more wires, the less stable the patient will be, from a myocardial standpoint...
- Mar 10 by VespertinasYeah, there's definitely that possibility in the Cardiovascular/thoracic SICU/IMC.
I mean, it's cool. We can pull ECGs from it when needed without scrambling for a machine.
