Integrated Home Monitoring and Compliance Optimization for Patients with Mechanical Circulatory Support Devices

Abstract

This article presents an integrated, automatic home-monitoring, and assist system for patients suffering from end-stage heart failure, particularly patients with implanted mechanical circulatory support devices, such as ventricular assist devices and total artificial hearts. The system incorporates various biosensors to monitor the vital parameters of the… (More)
