Remote monitoring of patients with heart failure during the first national lockdown for COVID-19 in France

During strict lockdown measures, multiparametric remote monitoring enable daily surveillance of patient’s vital signs and domicile handling of cardiac decompensation episodes....

During the first national lockdown due to COVID-19, conventional care was drastically reduced (58% less medical contacts and even 77% less in cardiology). However, the lockdown had little or no short-term impact on the vital parameters and clinical status of heart failure patients receiving multiparametric remote monitoring. This strategy allowed early identification and home management of most cardiac decompensations during the lockdown.
