ABSTRACT:
Two patients received CRT device and were remotely monitored with assessment of numerous parameters, including heart rate variability and fluctuation of fluid retention. In both patients alarming signs of heart failure exacerbation occurred in a period of 30 days preceding the hospitalisation due to the onset of symptoms associated with failing heart. In those cases, the admission to the hospital could have been predicted by the assessment of data gathered via telemonitoring system.
