The Cardiac Telemetry RN is responsible for professional nursing care and related assistance to patients with a broad range of illnesses. The RN will provide care to patients ranging from adolescence, adult to geriatric, utilizing in accordance with the medical staff within the organizational structure, philosophy, and goals and objectives of the Cardiac Telemetry Intermediate Care Unit and Methodist Hospital.

In the telemetry unit of a hospital, patients are often in critical condition and need constant monitoring and care. Telemetry nurses review data from special equipment to track a patients heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and other vitals. Since most of the patients in a telemetry unit have suffered heart attacks or are recovering from cardiac surgery, some RNs specialize in cardiac telemetry and are proficient in the use of electrocardiogram equipment. However, telemetry units may also be used to monitor patients with sleep disorders or neurological issues, such as epilepsy.

Telemetry nurses work with sophisticated equipment, so they must be proficient in using technology and interpreting data. They also need extensive medical knowledge and a familiarity with their patients medical history, so that they can ensure that patients are receiving the correct care and answer any questions patients may have. Telemetry unit RNs are typically responsible for multiple patients at a time, so strong multi-tasking abilities are a helpful trait.
