The VITALSIGN_HL7 table
This table is not yet populated.
Patients admitted to the emergency department may be monitored by telemetry. Minute-by-minute vital signs for telemetry are communicated to a central server in the hospital, and these vital signs are recorded here. However, vital signs are only communicated with patient identifiers manually input into the bedside monitors, a process which is not routine practice. As a result, many patients who are monitored by telemetry do not have their vital signs recorded in this table.
Table source: Emergency department database.
