Continuous ST-segment monitoring has been shown to be beneficial for patients with acute coronary syndromes as well as for other patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). This article reviews the significance and value of continuous ST-segment monitoring with emphasis on the value of 12-lead ST-segment monitoring across the continuum of care from the emergency department, to the cardiac catheterization laboratory, the ICU, and the telemetry unit.
