Monitors, Patient Transport
Definition : Monitors designed to measure various physiologic parameters associated with a patient's condition while the patient is being transported from one location to another (e.g., during interhospital or intrahospital transport). These monitors typically include capabilities for monitoring of electrocardiogram, hemoglobin oxygen saturation percentage, noninvasive blood pressure, and respiratory rate values; other monitoring capabilities (e.g., cardiac output, invasive blood pressure, intracranial blood pressure, end-tidal carbon dioxide) may also be included. Transport monitors are typically small, lightweight, and battery powered; intrahospital devices should be able to operate for several hours on battery power. Transport monitors may include configured, configured/modular, or modular designs.
