Tips on Choosing a Vital Signs Monitor to Buy
Buying a vital signs monitor means that your healthcare staff can better track acute and chronic medical conditions and help provide the best care possible to your patients. Vital signs monitors usually provide data on body temperature, pulse rate, respirations, and blood pressure, though some clinicians also count other measurements along with the basic vital signs, including pulse oximetry and end tidal carbon dioxide. No matter what types of vital signs you need to measure, it’s important that your medical monitoring equipment is dependable, and can provide the accurate data you need, when and where you need it.
So, how do you choose the right vital signs monitor for your healthcare facility? For one, you need to determine what type of medical needs your healthcare team handles. Whether you oversee an urgent care facility or manage a paramedic unit, portability is an important factor because you will want to take your medical monitoring equipment directly to where the patient is – the bedside, the intensive care unit, in a remote field triage, or wherever else the medical need should arise.
Another factor to consider when buying is what type of medical needs your healthcare staff usually handles. For example, if you tend to treat patients with anesthesia, you will require a high-end monitor that can track end-tidal carbon dioxide exchange, respirations, and heart rate. If, however, you oversee a small, neighborhood clinic, a standard vital signs monitor would work quite well.
