  1. I would be much more comfortable with the statement : If you feel that continuous monitoring of the pt is necessary during transport than it should be continued into the ED. I am afraid if it is mandated to continue monitoring if it is placed for any reason. We will have the unintended consequence of making Medic 2s think twice about using the monitor as a assessment tool.
