Postpartum Hypertension: Remote Patient Monitoring

2017-04-13 03:53:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to see if Honeywell Genesis Android Touch Bluetooth System (mobile health) can improve patient satisfaction and quality of care provided to women experiencing complications due to high blood pressure during pregnancy.


For six weeks postpartum, patients will use Honeywell Genesis Android Touch Bluetooth System to record and submit their daily blood pressure and weight measurements to a mobile health nurse and research team. Subjects will be provided with the kit (Honeywell tablet, mobile hot spot, blood pressure cuff, and scale) at no cost. Subjects will participate in video telehealth visits at 48 hours and 7 days after discharge to help provide management for hypertension related issues.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pregnancy in which the mother and/or FETUS are at greater than normal risk of MORBIDITY or MORTALITY. Causes include inadequate PRENATAL CARE, previous obstetrical history (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS), pre-existing maternal disease, pregnancy-induced disease (GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION), and MULTIPLE PREGNANCY, as well as advanced maternal age above 35.

A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.

Artificially induced UTERINE CONTRACTION. Generally, LABOR, OBSTETRIC is induced with the intent to cause delivery of the fetus and termination of pregnancy.

Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.
