In brief: Telemetry

For inpatient ambulatory patients, electrodes are taped to the chest and a transmitter box is attached to the trunk area.
The heart rhythm recording is then transmitted wirelessly to a monitor at the nurses station. Bedside monitors don't allow the patient to walk about the ward freely. Other set ups allow the patient's heart rhythm to be recorded in a gadget strapped to the body. Finger styles.
