Where are Portable Patient Monitors Used

Portable patient monitors can be used in a variety of settings, including:

  • Urgent Care Centers
  • Inpatient Wards
  • Outpatient Clinics
  • Emergency Rooms
  • Operating Rooms
  • Home Health Care

What are the Typical Dimensions of Portable Patient Monitors?

Most portable patient monitors are less than a 10″ x 10″ form factor and weigh less than 7lbs. The dimensions and weight are often less and can vary depending on the specific model. In general, most monitors are relatively lightweight and compact, making them easy to transport from one location to another within the facility or out in the field.  Ergonomic handles and easy-connect mounting systems are also a plus as these devices are often moved from room to room.

Typical Cost Range

Portable patient monitors typically range in cost from $700 to $4,800. The specific cost of a monitor will depend on brand, model, accessories, and the specific parameter features included.  Models with advanced features such as EtCO2 will tend to move to the higher end of the spectrum.

What Parameters do they Typically Have

Most portable patient monitors have the same basic set of parameters, which include:

  • Heart Rate
  • Respiratory Rate
  • Blood Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Oxygen Saturation Level

Many also include additional parameters such as blood glucose levels and electrocardiogram (ECG) readings. Additionally, some models include a built-in LCD screen while others require an external monitor.

Battery Life Is Important

The battery life of portable patient monitors varies depending on the specific model. However, most batteries last for several hours before needing to be recharged. This makes them ideal for use in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, and even at home.

Durability Is More Critical for Portables

Although portable patient monitors are generally durable and resistant to damage, it is still important to consider how they will hold up if accidentally dropped. Most models have been designed to withstand light bumps and bruises; however, if durability is a key concern, ask your supplier about this before purchase.

Screen Brightness for Changing Locations

Many portable patient monitors have adjustable screen brightness settings to accommodate changing environments. This is an important feature, especially if you plan to use the monitor in multiple locations with varying lighting conditions. Whether your monitor automatically adjusts screen brightness based on the light levels of your location or there is a setting to change the brightness manually, this is a feature you would want to have on your portable patient monitor.
