Use of Software Applications to Improve Medication Adherence and Achieve More Integrated Disease Management in Heart Failure A Review

The treatment and management of heart failure is associated with high mortality rates and treatment costs. Poor medication adherence is a major barrier to improving care and traditional interventions addressing non-adherence have not consistently demonstrated improvement in health care outcomes like readmission. The reasons for non-adherence are complicated and illustrate the broader challenges patients face when managing a complex disease like heart failure. In this review, a digitally enabled heart failure management platform consisting of medical digital tools and software solutions that are designed to be patient-facing and continuously accessed is explored as a way to integrate the multiple components of heart failure care and deliver personalized patient management tools.

Resumo A s índrome da fístula artério-portal (FAP) é uma rara e reversível causa de hipertensão portal pré-sinusoidal, ocasionada pela comunicação de uma artéria visceral com o sistema venoso portal. A maioria dos pacientes é assintomática, mas quando desenvolvem sintomas, estes são mais relaciona dos com sangramento gastrointestinal, ascite, insuficiência cardíaca congestiva e diarreia. Este desafio terapêutico apresenta um caso de FAP decorrente de ferimento antigo por arma branca e subsequente evoluç&atil...

Authors: Ikeya Y, Nakai T, Murata N, Monden M, Ogaku A, Hori K, Watanabe R, Arai M, Okumura Y Abstract To avoid the negative effects associated with pacing, pacemakers are designed to achieve a pacing cadence as close to physiological pacing as possible. In closed-loop stimulation (CLS; a type of rate-responsive functionality used in pacemakers), the changes in impedance (which correlates with the contractility of the myocardium around the lead tip electrode) are tracked, and the paced heart rate is adjusted accordingly. We herein report a case in which we implanted a pacemaker in a post-tricuspid valve replacement...

Objective: To assess the prognostic value of electrocardiographic atrial fibrillation in older hypertensive people in the randomized, placebo-controlled Hypertension in the Very Elderly Trial. Methods: Hypertension in the Very Elderly Trial randomized 3845 hypertensive people aged 80 years and over, 3273 with electrographic data on the presence or absence of atrial fibrillation at baseline and without established cardiovascular disease. Multivariate Cox proportional hazard models were used to estimate hazard ratios with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for all-cause mortality, incident fatal and nonfatal major cardiovas...
