Telemetry Cardiology – H5
The H5 Cardiac Telemetry Unit is a 30-bed unit that specializes in treating patients who are in varying stages of preparation or recuperation from cardiac diagnostic, therapeutic and/or surgical interventions. The patient population includes inpatient and 23-hour observation patients. Common diagnoses include advanced congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, unstable angina, acute myocardial infarction, heart transplant, arrhythmia and implanted ventricular assist devices. This unit is one of two units that provide care for left ventricular assist device (LVAD) and heart transplant patients.
Nurses on this unit gain experience with telemetry monitoring, administration of vasoactive and antiarrhythmic intravenous agents, management of cardiac chest pain and pre/post-operative care of cardio-thoracic surgical patients. It is a great unit to build the skills needed to become a cardiac or ICU nurse. The staff on this unit strive to put each patient first and enhance collaboration in clinical practice, education and quality assessment.
