SIKESTON -- Later this week, the first telemetry patients will take advantage of the brand-new 3F wing at Missouri Delta Medical Center.

"We are expecting to move patients there on Tuesday or Wednesday," said Karen Lawless, telemetry manager. The floor deals with patients who need to be connected to machines to measure heart rate, blood pressure and breathing rate, as well as blood-oxygen level and heart-rhythm monitoring information.
