telemetry

 [tĕ-lem´ĕ-tre]
the making of measurements at a distance from the subject; usually the measurable evidence of phenomena under investigation is transmitted by radio signals.

te·lem·e·try

(tĕ-lem'ĕ-trē),
The science of measuring a quantity, transmitting the results by radio signals to a distant station, and there interpreting, indicating, and/or recording the results.

the electronic transmission of data between distant points, such as the transmission of cardiac monitoring data.

telemetry

Cardiology The monitoring of the cardiac rhythm and transmission of signals or data from one electronic unit to another by radio waves using a device that provides real-time measurement of a Pt's EKG for various lengths of time See Multiple parameter telemetry, Real-timetelemetry.

telemetry

Measurement at a distance by radio waves or other means. The method has been used in medical research and diagnosis.

telemetry

literally 'measurement at a distance'. Achieved by portable radio transmitter sending data measured from the subject to the observer's receiver. In exercise physiology, these data invariably include heart rate (HR); more sophisticated (but bulkier) equipment will also report other values, e.g. oxygen consumption.
