Abstract

Around 10% of all persons over 70 years of age suffer heart failure in Spain. This is the most common cause of hospitalization amongst patients aged 65 years and over, being the third leading cause of cardiovascular mortality. Although some works have demonstrated that the use of telemedicine in the monitoring after discharge has improved the rates of readmission in patients with heart failure, there are no many works focused on older people, which represents a population with special clinical and functional characteristics. Our main hypothesis was that by telemonitoring functional status and vital signs, we can early detect heart failure exacerbation, minimising readmissions and length of hospitalisations.
