Let $f$ be oeprator monotone for some open interval $I$ of $\mathbb{R}$. It is known that $f$ has the analytic continuation on $\mathbb{H}_+\cup I \cup \mathbb{H}_-$, where $\mathbb{H}_+$ (resp. $\mathbb{H}_-$) is the upper (resp. the lower) half plane of $\mathbb{C}$. In this note, we determine the form of rational operator monotone functions by using elementary argument, and prove the operator monotonicity of some meromorphic functions.
