Abstract/Description:
Heart failure is a chronic cardiovascular disease that is caused due to the lack of blood supply from heart. This lack of blood supply leads to accumulation of the fluid in the thoracic region. Traditionally, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are used to treat HF and to monitor its parameters. Healthcare wearable devices (HWDs) are healthcare devices that can be worn or attached to the skin. HWD are non-invasive and low-cost means of providing healthcare at the point-of-care (POC). Herein, this dissertation discusses the development of a HWD for the monitoring of the parameters of heart failure (HF). These parameters include thoracic impedance, electrocardiogram (ECG), heart rate, oxygen saturation in blood and activity status of the subject. These are similar parameters as monitored using ICD. The dissertation will discuss the development, design, and results of the HWD.
