Patients who are typically taken care of by TELE travel nurses can be of any age and often present with conditions such as cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure, electrolyte imbalances, and other diagnoses.

Telemetry nurses play a pivotal role in the healthcare setting by preventing sudden cardiac death and saving lives. Telemetry nursing is a very critical and rewarding nursing specialty.
Telemetry nurses need to be able to think quickly and make sound decisions for patients who begin to display complications. Typical duties of telemetry nurses include the monitoring of patient’s vital signs, maintenance of the equipment for telemetry, administration of medication, and patient and family communication.
