Remote Patient Monitoring in Cardiothoracic Surgery: An Interview With Kevin Lobdell

Friday, March 15, 2024

At the 2024 STS Annual Meeting, CTSNet Editor in Chief Joel Dunning and CTSNet senior editors set out to interview the most knowledgeable CT surgeons from around the world. Stay tuned for more interviews from the meeting.

CTSNet Editor Mara Antonoff spoke with Professor Kevin Lobdell about remote patient monitoring in cardiothoracic surgery. Prof. Lobdell presented a study on remote monitoring that found decreased visits to the emergency department, only one death outside of the hospital, and shorter lengths of postoperative stay. Ultimately, Prof. Lobdell emphasized that the intended outcome of this technology is high quality time at home for the patient.

Prof. Lobdell is the executive director of Perfect Care and a cardiac surgeon at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States.
