When you are at the ER and you need to admit a patient to a ward with telemetry surveilance but there just isnt one availiable, you resort to ghetto telemetry: POX-meter and the patient hooked up to the ECG with the nurse ready to print a snapshot every time the heartrate drops below a threshhold with 0.5ml atropine ready at hand.
Doc!! the all the heart telemetry monitors are in use, what do we do?! calm down! Hook him up to a Ghetto Telemetry!
