World’s First Activity Assessment Following Cardiac Valve Surgery

THE PROBLEM THAT WE ARE STUDYING

There are two main methods of Cardiac Valve Surgery. These are Minimally Invasive and Full Sternotomy. Both methods have their expert followers and both methods are very successful. However, there hasn’t been a major study of the post-operative patients over a long period to evaluate the change. Once the patient goes home, collection of data is sporadic and of little value.

This study will monitor each patient for six months after the operation by collecting several strings of data from a wearable, which looks like a wrist watch. At periodic intervals in the study and at the end, expert medical statisticians will evaluate the outcomes.

OUTCOMES

In our studies we follow the axiom that “we don’t know what we don’t know” until a project has completed.

The measurements, which are time-stamped, include activity in steps, pulse, blood pressure, deep and light sleep and several others streams. We can also collect weather and pollution from the patient’s location with a correlating time-stamp.

Expert statisticians evaluate the huge volumes of data looking for spikes from the average, consistencies and shadows, impact of one string of data on another and of sets of strings on other sets. This is exciting work that will be of immense value to surgeons and after-care practitioners.

PUBLICATION

We will publish the white paper within 12 months. A feedback summary will be made available from their surgeons to all the contributing patients.
