A quality research study looked at differences in the rates of nuisance alarms between two 34-bed units – one using usual telemetry alarm management and the other using a bundled telemetry alarm intervention. Results are promising.
This video gives a glimpse of how a distance health approach designed to overcome alarm fatigue represents an exciting new paradigm in cardiac telemetry monitoring.
At Cleveland Clinic, a dedicated off-site central monitoring unit (CMU) provides 24/7 cardiac telemetry monitoring for non-critically ill patients. Standardized criteria and the latest technology is new to the world of telemetry.
A new study in JAMA shows it’s possible to ease cardiac telemetry alarm fatigue while actually reducing cardiopulmonary arrest events. The secret lies in a dedicated off-site central monitoring unit.
