Central Monitoring System
At MRMC our Central Monitoring System monitors the vital signs of our patients from any patient care area within the hospital. It is a wireless system, which allows continuous monitoring of our patients for any procedure outside of the ICU, ER or Med/Surg Units.
This system also allows our cardiologist to view any patient vitals signs in a real time mode no matter their location, be it inside or outside of the facility.
