The telemedicine function is similar to
the out-patient department, but the main features are the great
accessibility and velocity of patient-doctor interaction in various
acute illnesses. This department collects the ECG data (stand-
by ECGs, long-term ECGs) from the other departments of the hospital
and organizes the tele-consultations in 24 hours daily.
This department organize the use of ECG telemetry systems
from the beginning, in-hospital phase to the out-patient one.
Cardiac telemetry systems are used on patients in postoperative
or other recovery units to increase their freedom of movement.
These systems provide freedom of movement without distortion.
There are three primary phases of cardiac care where cardiac
telemetry is used:
- Phase-1.: patients are monitored in the
hospital immediately after being released from an intensive care
or cardiac care unit;
- Phase-2.: patients begin the transition
and recovery process, where they begin an exercise program;
- Phase-3.: patients go back home and come
back at regular intervals to the cardiac rehabilitation clinic
or health club to monitor their heart while exercising.
