Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
I feel self monitoring devices should only be available through nhs
or nhs approved companies,so that at least we are sure of quality and
accuracy of it.
But more important then this is proper information to the patient at
the time of first consultation [to have it or not,where to get it,which one
to buy,to what extend it is accurate,to contact health services when in
doubt.] specially in case of fetal monitors, cardiac monitors.
May be these monitoring device are good but even if 1 out of 100
suffers it is not acceptable.
