Holter Monitoring definition: An ambulatory electrocardiography technique that records a continuous electrocardiographic rhythm pattern for 24 hours or more to detect heart arrythmias.
Environmental Monitoring definition: The monitoring of the level of toxins, chemical pollutants, microbial contaminants, or other harmful substances in the environment or workplace by measuring the amounts of these toxicants in the bodies of people and animals in that environment, among other methods. It also includes the measurement of ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE. Levels in humans and animals are used as indicators of toxic levels of undesirable chemicals.
Fetal Monitoring definition: Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.
Monitoring, Immunologic definition: Testing of immune status in the diagnosis and therapy of cancer, immunoproliferative and immunodeficiency disorders, and autoimmune abnormalities. Changes in immune parameters are of special significance before, during and following organ transplantation. Strategies include measurement of tumor antigen and other markers (often by RADIOIMMUNOASSAY), studies of cellular or humoral immunity in cancer etiology, IMMUNOTHERAPY trials, etc.
Monitoring, Physiologic definition: The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
Radiation Monitoring definition: The observation, either continuously or at intervals, of the levels of radiation in a given area, generally for the purpose of assuring that they have not exceeded prescribed amounts or, in case of radiation already present in the area, assuring that the levels have returned to those meeting acceptable safety standards.
Uterine Monitoring definition: Measurement or recording of contraction activity of the uterine muscle. It is used to determine progress of LABOR, OBSTETRIC and assess status of pregnancy. It is also used in conjunction with FETAL MONITORING to determine fetal response to stress of maternal uterine contractions.
Monitoring, Intraoperative definition: The constant checking on the state or condition of a patient during the course of a surgical operation (e.g., checking of vital signs).
Drug Monitoring definition: The process of observing, recording, or detecting the effects of a chemical substance administered to an individual therapeutically or diagnostically.
Monitoring definition: The act of observing something (and sometimes keeping a record of it).
Polysomnography definition: Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
polysomnography definition: simultaneous and continuous monitoring of relevant normal and abnormal physiological activity during sleep.
Monitoring, Ambulatory definition: The use of electronic equipment to observe or record physiologic processes while the patient undergoes normal daily activities.
monitoring device definition: any instrument that periodically measures or regulates a condition in a system that need to be maintained within prescribed limits.
Monitoring Device definition: A recording device or display that continuously keeps track of the function, condition, or operation of the system or organism and warns of an abnormal or potentially dangerous situation.
Monitoring Systems definition: Systems designed to continuously acquire, measure, process, and display biologic, technical, environmental, or other data from one or more patients, devices, or other targets. These systems typically consist of a central station monitor that receives, consolidates, and displays information from a set of monitors and/or appropriate sensors (e.g., temperature, pressure) that are deployed throughout a healthcare area; cables and/or wireless links; computerized processing units; and display monitors. Dedicated monitoring systems are typically used in healthcare facilities to monitor physiologic and clinical laboratory parameters; other monitoring systems may be used to monitor technical and safety characteristics (e.g., radiation levels, presence of pathogens), and environmental data.
monitoring definition: The act of overseeing the progress of a clinical trial, and of ensuring that it is conducted, recorded, and reported in accordance with the protocol, standard operating procedures (SOPs), good clinical practice (GCP), and the applicable regulatory requirement(s). [ICH E6 Glossary]
Clinical Trials, Monitoring definition: For clinical decision-making, the purposeful and ongoing acquisition, interpretation, and synthesis of patient data obtained from clinical trials.
Nutrition Monitoring definition: Any method for determining as accurately as possible total food amount and composition ingested by subjects in dietary studies or amount of specific dietary components.
monitoring program definition: An officially or unofficially instituted program to track acts of a particular type or categorization.
Abfrage definition: [1] Informatik: Auswahl von Informationen aus einem elektronisch gespeicherten Datenbestand [2] fragende Prüfung
monitorage definition: Technique de surveillance d'un sujet, utilisant un moniteur.
monitoring definition: Surveillance.
monitoring definition: Technique permettant d'analyser, de contrôler, de surveiller, en médecine, les réactions physiopathologiques d'un patient.
