Memorial upgrades cardiac telemetry technologyby jmaloni
Dr. Robert Neufeld, left, a cardiologist with Buffalo Heart Group, LLP, and head of cardiology at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, monitors sample patient data on a new Spacelabs cardiac monitor in the medical center's intensive care unit. Memorial recently invested more than $1 million in advanced cardiac telemetry technology for its ER1 Emergency Department, ICU and inpatient Heart & Stroke Center. The system utilizes the most advanced technology available and provides easy access to patient data. The state-of the-art system can also be configured to enable data displays on attending physicians' smart phones and iPads.
