Monitoring Your Heart
The hospital is specifically designed to allow close monitoring of your heart rate and rhythm through a telemetry monitor, which is a small box connected to your chest by wires and electrodes. As long as you are wearing the telemetry monitor, your heart rate and rhythm are being closely monitored. The telemetry monitor may be removed if you leave the unit for a test or procedure. At some point, your physician may decide that you no longer need to wear the telemetry monitor, even if you remain within the hospital.
