  1. Hey folks,

    I just got offered a job as a monitor tech. For those of you who are techs, any advice? Anything that I should brush up on (I've worked as an ER tech and just finished a class in cardiac arrhythmias)? For the nurses in the house, what do you like/dislike about your techs? Thanks in advance.

    OK, I'll bite... My favorite monitor tech would let me know immediately if there were any ECG changes or ectopy, pauses. (Pt going in and out of fib, salvos or runs of v-tach, pauses, 3rd degree).
