Monitors, Bedside, Physiologic
Definition : Bedside monitors designed to acquire, measure, display, monitor, record/store, and in some cases analyze information related to one or more physiologic parameters reflecting a patient's clinical condition. These monitors contain electronic circuits or other technology designed to acquire and/or process the signal from one or more physiologic sensors (e.g., electrodes, catheters, probes, pressure transducer sets). Physiologic bedside monitors are designed to be externally connected via cables/leads to the appropriate sensors (e.g., electrodes, catheters, probes, transducer sets) attached to or inserted in the patient. Physiologic bedside monitors, when used as part of a patient monitoring system, allow users to change or add monitored parameters for an individual patient without having to employ other monitors or interrupt the monitoring of other parameters.
