IS-08: Home monitoring of patients with cardiac insufficiency to prevent decompensation

This project has been set up to develop a predictor that can reliably forecast a deterioration in cardiac insufficiency in patients implanted with a defibrillator or heart pacemaker. A predictor means an algorithm that determines the risk of impending decompensation and warns the doctor in the event of a threatening condition on the basis of physiological measurement data acquired on a daily basis in the implant and transmitted via a telemedical home monitoring system.
