Remote Monitoring Devices and Heart Failure

Heart Fail Clin. 2024 Jan;20(1):1-13. doi: 10.1016/j.hfc.2023.05.002. Epub 2023 Jun 17.


Remote patient monitoring (RPM) in patients with heart failure (HF) involves transmitting physiological data from devices to a health-care provider via a wireless connection with targeted interventions when values exceed the preset threshold. Devices used in telemonitoring range from weighing scales, blood pressure cuffs, and pulse oximeters to devices used to measure cardiac filling pressure and intrathoracic impedance using cardiac implantable electronic devices and wearables. Accordingly, RPM devices can potentially engage patients in their cardiovascular care and reduce the burden of HF in society.

Keywords: Heart failure; Intrathoracic impedance; Pulmonary artery pressure monitoring; Remote monitoring.
