Clinical monitoring is one of the primary ways that clinicians continuously observe trends in patients baseline health and response to treatment. In order to ensure accuracy of the data derived from the monitors attached to our patients that clinicians heavily rely upon, the placement of these monitoring leads is crucial. Melding the technology requirements with the needs of our patients, will lead to optimization of monitoring. Through case studies, you will learn the common pitfalls in monitoring and strategies to improve outcomes.

2. Describe optimal practices in clinical monitoring
3. Utilize case reviews to support clinical monitoring needs, common pitfalls in monitoring, and prevention strategies
