Failing to reach blood pressure (BP) goals is one of the main problems in hypertension management. Especially in high-risk patients, intensive monitoring including frequently office visits or new techniques to monitor home BP is required. A total of 60 patients with uncontrolled hypertension were included and randomized into a group with telemetric BP(More)
Lacking compliance with liquid intake restrictions is one of the major problems in patients on hemodialysis and causes an increased mortality. In 120 patients on hemodialysis with an average interdialytic weight gain (IWG) exceeding 1.5 kg on at least 2 days during the 4 weeks preceding the intervention, the effect of telemetric body weight measurement(More)
Lipoprotein apheresis is a well-established extracorporeal treatment in modality of severe hyperlipoproteinemia. Besides the reduction of LDL cholesterol and modifications to physiology of lipoprotein and lipid metabolism, Lipoprotein apheresis may have crucial effects on many other atherogenic factors as vascular inflammation, rheology and gene expressions(More)
As the healthcare market continues to evolve, technology will play an increasingly important role in an integrated delivery system's ability to provide high-quality, cost-effective care. Healthcare leaders must be proactive and forward thinking about their technology investments. The financial investment for technology innovation can be significant.(More)
BACKGROUND Lipoprotein apheresis (LA) is used in hypercholesterolemic patients suffering from cardiovascular disease (CHD) if a modified diet and lipid-lowering drug regimens had failed. During the first LA treatments LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) and lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) can be decreased very effectively when using generally accepted formulas for calculating(More)
Increased concentrations of low-density-lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol (LDL-C) and lipoprotein a (Lp(a)) are scientifically accepted, independent risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis. The complications of atherosclerosis occur early and more frequently. They are strongly linked with lifestyle factors and an increase of LDL-C concentrations in(More)

Telemedicine comprises different methods of bridging a spatial distance between doctor, medical and care services and patients. These include mere data transmissions as well as alarm functionalities, consultations and therapy recommendations. A special form of telemedicine application is the interventional decentralised telemonitoring (idTM). Here the(More)
