Wearable Devices For In-Home Monitoring Of Patients At Risk For Heart Failure: Shield-Hf


Seeking adults aged 40 and older with acute heart failure or at risk for atrial fibrillation (abnormal heart rhythms) for a study of an investigational wearable device to detect early symptoms of heart failure or abnormal heart rhythms


We are studying an investigational wearable device that could be worn at home to see whether it works well to monitor for heart failure by detecting the buildup of fluid in your lungs before it causes you to feel ill.

What we're hoping for

We are hoping that the investigational device will allow people at risk for atrial fibrillation to be monitored for early signs of heart failure or abnormal heart rhythms outside of the clinic
