US-based Advanced ICU Care has launched its telemetry monitoring services at Memorial Health System member Passavant Area Hospital in Jacksonville, Illinois.

As part of the service, certified electrocardiogram (EKG) technicians in an Advanced ICU Care centre will remotely monitor at-risk cardiac patients in the hospital around the clock.

Telemetry monitoring systems used by the technicians will enable remote patient observation to provide real-time oversight of patients who have been identified as high-risk for cardiac events.

Besides, technicians monitor patients’ heart functions for variances, review alerts, and when clinically appropriate, get involved with the bedside physicians and nurses to intervene when patients require clinical attention.

By remotely monitoring the patients, the team will be able to identify warning indicators and urgent situations and can also support in earlier intervention.

Passavant Area Hospital president and CEO Harry Schmidt said: “Our new telemetry partnership with Advanced ICU Care enhances our ability to provide excellent care through optimal delivery.
