Abstract

The progressive aging of society results in a one-third increase in mortality rates of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients over the past decade. In the end stage of CKD, 40% of deaths are sudden deaths due to cardiac arrhythmias precipitated by electrolyte imbalance. Unfortunately, there is a lack of technology for unobtrusive long-term monitoring of life-threatening conditions, leading to limited knowledge on arrhythmia characteristics and their relationship with complications. This paper presents a wearable technology prototype to monitor CKD patients between subsequent dialysis procedures. The proposed technology enables at-home monitoring of electrolyte fluctuations and detection of cardiac arrhythmias, such as ventricular tachycardia and extreme bradycardia. A patient uses a wearable wrist-worn device to record continuous photoplethysmogram and intermittent electrocardiogram signals together with a smart device, such as a tablet or a smartphone, to enter meals and medications that may alter electrolyte levels. The application of the proposed wearable technology is demonstrated in a case analysis. The developed wearable technology for monitoring CKD patients in a home environment can be valuable for identifying patients susceptible to dangerous arrhythmias due to electrolyte imbalance.
