    Cardiac means near, around, or area of the heart and "cardiac" originates from the Greek word "cardio" meaning associated with one’s heart.

    A "Cardiac Monitor" can be a special monitor specifically made to count, display, and remember how often the premature baby’s heart is beating as well as the baby’s breathing patterns. Whenever a premature baby’s heartrate drops below 100 bpm or raises higher than 200 bpm an alarm will sound alerting the concern givers of the problem. The concern givers can easily take notice of the premature baby’s breathing and heart all the time while the monitor keeps track of perhaps the smallest changes.

    The cardiac monitor resembles a TV screen with leads and electrodes coming from the machine and connecting on the premature baby. The leads seem like cables or wires from the machine and fastening towards the electrodes, and the electrodes seem like patches that come with your premature baby’s skin. The screen graphs the gathered information in a wave-graph form together with the vertical height of the waves showing the volt strength of each and every beat, as well as the horizontal width with the waves showing time passing in between each beat.

    One kind of cardiac monitoring can be an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) in fact it is used to detect problems from the heart like skipped heartbeats, heart damage, vitamin, mineral & electrolyte imbalances, and all-around health conditions in the heart. The electrocardiogram takes information from an electrocardiograph monitoring the patient, is really a graphic interpretation with the information, and prints out the information for easier reading and interpretation.

    A different type of cardiac monitoring is a transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE), an ultrasound in the heart. An echocardiogram (ECHO) takes pictures of one’s heart, and it is an outstanding diagnostic tool for doctors to quickly assess many cardiovascular disease without invasive procedures. This machine monitors one’s heart valves, strength of heart muscle contractions, cardiac tissue, the circulation of blood, and just how quickly the blood is flowing with the heart.
