Hospitals and other health care facilities use medical telemetry devices to monitor patients' vital signs and other important parameters and transmit this information via radio to a remote location such as a nurses' station. For example, wireless cardiac monitors are often used to monitor patients following surgery. Certain types of medical telemetry devices may be used in the home. The word is derived from Greek roots tele = remote, and metron = measure. Although the term commonly refers to wireless data transfer mechanisms (e.g. using radio or infrared systems), it also encompasses data transferred over other media, such as a telephone or computer network, optical link or other wired communications.
The Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS) report and order sets aside the frequencies of: 608 to 614 MHz, 1395 to 1400 MHz, and 1429 to 1432 MHz for primary or co-primary use by eligible wireless medical telemetry users.
