Cheyenne Regional Medical Center adds 50 telemetry monitors
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming News reported the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center has doubled the number of telemetry monitors available to monitor patients.
These monitors continuously track heart rates and rhythms and detect cardiac problems quickly, said Dr. Muhammad Khan. He is an interventional cardiologist and medical director of the hospital’s cardiovascular service line.
A trained technician can study up to 50 monitors at a time. These monitors appear on one large computer screen in an area separated from patient beds.
Case studies show that watching up to 50 monitors is a best practice used at many hospitals.
The hospital also will double the number of telemetry technicians from four to eight. Salaries for the new techs will be added to the equipment cost. The hospital has already hired the technicians.
