Assessment of Telehome Monitoring in Patients on Peritoneal Dialysis: A Multicentre Randomized Controlled Trial

2016-02-01 18:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Compared to hemodialysis, patients on peritoneal dialysis live longer and healthier, have a higher quality of life and cost approximately $40,000 less to the healthcare system per patient per year. However, only 18% of dialysis patients in Canada currently use peritoneal dialysis because patients often feel isolated from the healthcare team and lack the confidence to manage treatments by themselves. This study will assess a telehome monitoring system (eQ Connect™), allowing for up-to-date data transmission and digital interaction between the patients at home and their healthcare team. From the patients' perspective, this technology is an easier way to communicate with their healthcare providers, track their treatment and supplies, and receive training and support. From the providers' perspective, eQ Connect™ delivers up-to-date patient data and provides an efficient way to keep track of the patients' progress. This intervention has the potential to improve the patients' clinical outcomes, quality of life, reduce the costs of dialysis to the healthcare system and ultimately empower patients to start and stay on peritoneal dialysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)

The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.

Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.

Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.

Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.
