POST DOCTORAL FELLOW

Job Description

Strength Through Diversity

Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.

 
Roles & Responsibilities:
  • Develop and run a prospective observational trial of the pre-discharge use of the ReDS system (Sensible Medical, Netanya, Israel). This device uses radar technology to accurately measure percent lung water volume. We have demonstrated that the use of this technology in early post-discharge follow-up reduced 30-day heart failure readmission and improved adherence with guideline directed heart failure therapy. We now want to use this technology in the hospital setting to determine the optimal timing for home discharge. Our hypothesis is that the use of this technology will assist in determining whether patients have been sufficiently decongested and this will result in further reduction in 30-day rehospitalization. 

    Participate in will be the creation of a multi-institutional heart failure database. This will include the development of a biorepository of serum and tissue samples from patients with all forms of heart failure and cardiomyopathy. The intent is to create a multi-scale model to create patient-level predictive analytic tools around heart failure survival, need for hospitalization, and hospital length of stay, readmission risk, quality of life and functional status.
