How to read a vital sign monitor?


Vital signs refer to the general term of body temperature, pulse, respiration and blood pressure. Through the observation of vital signs, the occurrence and development of diseases can be understood, so as to provide reliable basis for clinical diagnosis and treatment. The device used to monitor these vital signs is called a vital sign monitor.

What about the data on the monitor?

ECG – Electrocardiogram

The heart in each cardiac cycle, pacemaker, atrium, ventricle successively excited, accompanied by electrocardiogram bioelectric changes, through the electrocardiograph from the body surface leads to a variety of forms of potential changes of the graph. Electrocardiogram (ECG) is an objective indicator of the occurrence, propagation and recovery of cardiac excitation.

NIBF – Blood Pressure

This is a measure of the force on the arteries when the heart is beating (called systolic blood pressure) versus when it is at rest (diastolic blood pressure). The first number (systolic) should be between 100 and 130, and the second (diastolic) should be between 60 and 80.

TEMP – Temperature

Normal body temperature is usually thought of as 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, but it can actually be anywhere from slightly below 98 degrees to slightly above 99 degrees without worrying.

PL – Heart Rate

The heart of a healthy adult usually beats between 60 and 100 times per minute. People who are more active may have slower heart rates.

SPO2 — Blood Oxygen Saturation

This number measures the amount of oxygen in the blood and has a maximum of 100. The number is usually 95 or higher, and anything below 90 means your body may not be getting enough oxygen.

RESP — Breathe

A resting adult typically takes 12 to 16 breaths per minute.
