What is a Cardiac Monitor Tech?
Cardiac Monitor technicians are responsible for watching patients' heart rates and reporting important changes to the nursing staff; they often use equipment that tracks several patients simultaneously. They also help clean and maintain equipment and ensure batteries are charged and installed properly. They are a vital part of the care team, collaborating with nurses and physicians to observe and interpret heart-related diseases and conditions by using non-invasive cardiology techniques which can detect arrhythmia´s and irregular heartbeats.
