Choosing the right vital signs monitor

6102F-PA00020-2Vital signs monitors are one of the most essential devices in any medical office. From blood pressure to heart rate, temperature and pulse oximetry, this is the information you need to gather about each of your patients. Whether you’re part of an intensive care unit, a small clinic or a nursing home, you need an effective way to measure these vital signs in order to give your patients the best possible care.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when shopping around for a vital signs monitor.

How will your staff handle the equipment?

This depends on the nature of your practice. Emergency rooms and paramedics need a machine that’s easily portable in order to get the equipment to a patient’s bedside or inside an ambulance. And no matter where you need to use it, all vital signs monitoring equipment should be easy to use, even for those without additional expertise or training. This ensures all types of health care professionals can use the equipment in any situation.

8100E1What kind of patients are you treating?

Consider the medical needs of your patients before deciding on a vital signs monitor. Patients treated often with drugs will need a more comprehensive monitor to keep track of heart rate, end-tidal carbon dioxide exchange and respirations. But in a smaller health care facility, you might only need a simple monitor to measure the basic stats.

Medical Device Depot carries vital signs monitors and accessories from all major manufacturers, including ADCBionetEdanMortaraCriticareMidmarkMindraySchiller, Welch Allyn and Venni. Browse our selection today to find equipment that works for you and your practice.
