When I think of warranties, I think of health insurance. I’m not going to read the coverage because I don’t know what half of it means and I think (hope) nothing will happen. As a result, I don’t really know what’s covered until something happens. (Hello, Achilles tendon.) And then I have no idea what it will cost me. (Please don’t tear, Achilles. I hear you’re worth $6K. No idea on the out-of-pocket.)
“You get what you pay for” usually means that if something is inexpensive, it’s poor quality. We can debate this idiom all day long. Is Whole Foods really better than Trader Joe’s? Is Apple better than Samsung?

Telemetry labs, aka continuous monitoring labs, help overburdened medical staff spend time on face-to-face patient care.
Even before COVID-19 took a stranglehold on U.S. medical resources, many hospitals and healthcare facilities recognized the benefits of having an on-site (or off-site) continuous monitoring lab.
So, what is a Continuous Monitoring Lab?
Continuous monitoring labs, aka telemetry labs, are remote labs in which trained medical personnel conduct real-time monitoring of patient vital signs, including (ECG) readings, heart rate, and oxygen saturation. Relieving nurses of this burden, which they have traditionally performed during their daily rounds, lets them spend more quality time on face-to-face care—helping to improve the level of patient care and reduce nurse burnout.
As the need for continuous monitoring grows, along with the sheer number of patients that nurses must care for, so too goes the demand for well-designed telemetry labs that deliver comfort, productivity, and long-term return on investment in your healthcare organization.
So how much does it cost to procure a telemetry desk that will support your patient care team while they do the mission-critical work of saving lives? Read on for answers to this and your other cost questions surrounding telemetry workstations.
