Description:

Medical telemetry is used in most hospitals and many outpatient facilities. This session explores the usage of medical telemetry, including the need for it to be able to operate interference-free from other radio frequency sources. The FCC requires medical telemetry operating in the 608-614, 1395-1400 and 1427-1432 MHz bandwidths to be registered. The process for registration will be discussed. In addition, the concept of bandwidth co-usage and the future of this technology will be discussed.

 


Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the process for the registration medical telemetry equipment.
  • Describe the consequences of medical telemetry interference.
  • Describe co-use of RF bandwidth.
  • Discuss the future bandwidth needs for medical telemetry.
