ABSTRACT
The article discusses continuous computerized ST-segment monitoring for cardiac disease. It states that in 2004, the American Association of Critical Care Nurses issued a practice alert on ST-segment monitoring which showed that the research supports the value of ST-segment monitoring for detecting silent myocardial ischemia (SMI) in patient. It also mentions that the practice alert determines that the monitoring techniques should vary depending on the history of patient's medical condition.
