The LifeVest® is a wearable defibrillator used to protect patients who are temporarily at an increased risk of ventricular tachycardia and sudden cardiac death.
The LifeVest® has a "telemonitoring function." This enables daily transmission of the technical device status, newly occurring cardiac arrhythmias and other medical parameters to an external server station.
Your clinical care.
Many LifeVest® patients show an at least temporarily impaired left ventricular function. In addition to sudden cardiac death protection, clinical heart failure management and advanced arrhythmia monitoring is also required in these patients.
That needs intensified and professional medical care. Even in periods of well-being deteriorations may occur, which - if not detected in time - can lead to dangerous deteriorations of the disease. Here the LifeVest® can help with a lot of clinically relevant information. The vest records wearer compliance, the occurrence of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, physical activity and other heart failure indicators.
With these data, you are enabled for a timely medical response. This increases the safety and efficacy of your clinical care and creates long-term patient loyalty.
Typical clinical follow-up decisions include management of heart failure medication, antiarrhythmics and anticoagulation, as well as the indication of further medical measures such as cardioversion, ablation and device surgeries.
Our logistical service.
The challenge of LifeVest® telemonitoring relates to the large data volume and the structured provision of this information to you - the attending physician.
With a lot of experience, we can solve these challenges for you. Every working day, our specialized team looks at all transmissions sent from your patients' LifeVest®. In case of missing connectivity and unclear transmissions, our team will contact your patients to clarify the root causes. According to your wish, the general health status can also be collected in a structured heart failure interview.
The information is processed and forwarded to you the attending physician, for timely and precise clinical decision making.
