A part of the evolution series, this article was published last February 2010 as a two-page spread. The article focuses on the developments made in patient monitors.
This article documents the evolution of the patient monitor from its early roots in 1707 when an English physician made a special watch that measures the pulse rate to the launch of the first wireless patient monitor in 2008. The article also talks about how different monitors were used to measure different vital signs and how it has changed to a single monitor that can even be handheld and wireless.
