Erasmus MC uses sensors to monitor cardiac patients

Project summary

At Erasmus MC a patient received for the first time a Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) as well as a special sensor. The sensor can transmit data on the patient’s condition to the cardiologist from anywhere. The cardiologist can then adjust the patient’s medication remotely and timely intervention is thus possible in the event of problems.


This reduces the time that patients have to deal with symptoms and also results in fewer hospital visits and admissions.
