Home or hospital in heart failure

Objective

Home monitoring of cardiovascular and other parameters is being tested in heart failure (HF), since HF is an increasing load on scarce hospital resources. Previous monitoring recorded weight, heart rate and blood pressure compared to telephone contacts.

Novel features of this application extend this approach by:
a) long-term monitoring of respiration and heart rate rhythm and variability, as irregular breathing, arrhythmias and sympathetic hyperactivity have powerful effects on morbidity and prognosis,
b) new user-friendly systems to collect such data at home and
c) new methods of data transmission and analysis.

These new features will be compared with existing state of the art techniques and more simple management algorithms. Prognostic prediction, patient QOL, education and self-care, and cost-effectiveness in different European countries will be assessed.
