We're looking for Acute Care Telemetry RNs for an immediate travel nurse opening in The Beautiful State of California. The right nurse should have at least one year (12 months) of work experience in a United States acute care facility in the specialty area. This year of acute experience MUST be within the last 2 years time.
Telemetry is a mixture of registered nurse duties and technical skills to operate machinery that monitors patient health—the most common being the echocardiogram (EKG). This means that telemetry nurses need the same bedside manner skills as registered nurses as well as the technical know-how to run stress tests and read EKG strips in order to properly care for patients.

This wide breadth of knowledge is often a determining factor in telemetry nurses becoming certified. Certifications for telemetry nurses (discussed further below) allow for continual education and proficiency in the telemetry field.

Using Electronic Equipment to Monitor Patients
Reading an EKG is one of the primary functions that distinguishes telemetry nurses from RNs. In fact, in many hospitals where nurses are required to rotate between different critical care units, telemetry is one where nurses feel the least comfortable. This is because learning to read a strip of paper full of squiggly lines that are supposed to represent heart function takes a lot of training.

Other equipment that is used in the telemetry unit includes heart monitors and Holter monitors. Each of these plays an important role in determining the overall health of the patient.

Looking for Arrhythmias, Cardiac Baseline Changes, and Abnormalities
On this strip of paper full of squiggly lines (the EKG strip), nurses should be able to determine any arrhythmias, cardiac baseline changes, and abnormalities. Nurses interpret the strip by noting the rate, rhythm, axis, hypertrophy, and ST-segment.

Responding to any Irregularities
Because of the amount of equipment strapped to your cardiac patients, there are many factors determining the health of the patient. Reacting to these irregularities in an urgent manner is needed to protect the patient, and often waiting for a physician to respond takes too long.
