Cardiac Monitor (Telemetry) Lead Placement ;)


Tele Lead Placement
Hi Guys!
This is a quick fun video to show you a little trick about how to place cardiac monitor leads also known as telemetry leads!
When you are a cardiac nurse also known as a step down nurse, tele nurse, ICU nurse…. ect.
You will need to monitor your patients heart rhythm.
To do this we use what is called a ecg machine or electrocardiogram… this measures the electrical activity that the heart is producing from each of the areas.
This allows you to see what is physically going on in your patients heart. What is cool about this is that it is an extra way to monitor your patient close.
Many times these machines are build in on the walls and can restrict the patients activity due to the length of the wire.
On most of the units that I work in we have what is called a remote telemetry monitor.
It is basically the size of a hand and can be placed in the patients hospital gown pocket.
This allows the patient to room around the room & most of the time the rest of the unit and we will still be able to see out patients cardiac rhythm.
So in this video I will show you how and where to place the leads so that you can properly monitor your patient.
I will also show you a trick that will help you remember where the proper placement is 🙂
I really hope you enjoy this video… if you do. Please give it a thumbs up and post a comment to let me know!
Cannot wait to see you again soon!

    Thank you! On a Holter monitor for 48 hours. While moving about, my bottom leads (white, brown, and black) unsnapped. I knew brown was in the middle but couldn't remember the "smoke, fire", etc part. You've saved the day! 🙂

    Learned white over right, smoke over fire for the white, black, and red leads. Nice video. Also, you're hot.

    The lead placement in this video is so wrong. Please find someone who actually knows what they're doing.

    You should not be wearing nailpolish – you are not able to disinfect your hands properly! Please give the GOOD example…

    I'm hoping it doesn't interfere with my sarky sound waves, not to mention I can't wash my fringe in the morning 😬😬👎🏼

    Please don't take so long to show the location. Also, I wanted to find out where the item goes V1 – 4th intercostal space to the right of sternum. Talk in confidence. It sounded like you wasn't sure at the begining

    What is the difference between telemetry and medsurg/telemetry? I heard that telemetry was just like a medsurg floor, but everyone has to be on a monitor.
