    For patients who are on a cardiac monitor (on any pediatric unit), is your practice to print strips at scheduled intervals and have nurses complete a strip interpretation? We are currently reviewing our guidelines and this is not our current practice, just curious to see what other children’s hospitals do. Thank you in advance for any feedback!
