Specialized heart monitoring
Ridgeview’s Telemetry (Intermediate) Care Unit specializes in providing comprehensive care that includes an increased level of patient monitoring by our nursing staff. The majority of patients treated in this area have cardiovascular or heart conditions, and may have been diagnosed with heart attack, angina (chest pain), syncope (unexplained fainting) or cardiac arrhythmia. If you require heart monitoring, you will receive care in this unit.
If you have been critically ill in the Cardiac/Intensive Care Unit (CICU) you will usually move to the Telemetry Care Unit once your condition stabilizes. After your health has improved during treatment in this area (an average of 3.2 days), you might be discharged directly or moved to a regular inpatient unit for a later discharge. While in the Telemetry Care Unit, you'll learn about your condition and how to access health maintenance programs.
Ridgeview’s Telemetry Care nursing staff consists of highly-trained, experienced registered nurses certified in basic and advanced cardiac life support and the interpretation of cardiac rhythms.
