Medical Supply Experts Explain Patient Monitors, Henrietta, New York

Along with alerting caregivers to potentially life-threatening events, patient monitors allow doctors to keep track of their patients’ health through the use of advanced medical technology. Serving customers worldwide, Foremost Medical Equipment has supplied state-of-the art medical equipment from over 25 leading brands for over a decade. Here, the medical supply experts discuss patient monitors and explain how these pieces of equipment saves lives.

What Is a Patient Monitor?

Since a doctor is unable to monitor the health of their patient at all times, patient monitoring equipment does the job for them by constantly checking an individual’s respiration rate, blood pressure, body temperature, cardiac output, and blood glucose. This helps reduce the length of hospital stays, while sending out any necessary alerts to let a medical provider know the patient is in a dangerous situation and needs emergency medical care.

What Types of Patient Monitors Are Available?

patient monitorsThere is a wide range of patient monitors available to fit any hospital or in-home budget. Some are designed with busy hospital settings in mind and are mobile so they can be moved from room to room. Other monitors feature color displays for easy differentiation between vital signs. There are also models that offer built-in printers to print out vital sign and EKG charts. No matter which model is chosen, both the patient and doctor will have peace of mind knowing the patient monitor will always provide the most up-to-date information.
