For our patients, they start continuous monitoring once chemo begins, unless contraindicated (as with Thiotepa) & we are required to be PALS certified.

Good morning, We are starting a BMT program and would like to know how you are monitoring your patients. Do you monitor (telemetry) during cell infusions only or continuously? If continuous do your nurses take a critical care EKG class and what is the expectation of them in regard to reading and interpreting the rhythms? Any other monitoring info is greatly appreciated. Thank you Maureen
