Traditionally, the telephone has been the method used in cardiac populations to assess patients, provide information, and implement interventions. Evolving telehealth technologies provide an opportunity to explore other methods to deliver nursing interventions and monitor outcomes. A new telehealth technology being tested to deliver a Home Communication Intervention for postoperative coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients is a device called the Health Buddy (HB). The HB is a 6- by 9-inch device that the patient attaches to an existing telephone line and patients respond daily to a scripted intervention. Development of the patient tailored algorithm for the intervention necessitated: development of clinical algorithm based on previous pilot work of symptom patterns; feasibility testing of elderly CABG patients’ ability to use the HB; mastering technical use of HB to device to deliver the intervention and the daily monitoring of patient responses; and downloading the HB data and manipulating the data for statistical analyses. Results from a randomized experimental pilot study of elderly CABG patients (N=57), demonstrated that the intervention group had less symptom interference with physical activity for the following symptoms: angina, shortness of breath, fatigue, problems sleeping, incisional pain, anxiety, and appetite problems. Preliminary testing of this device has demonstrated promising results as an efficacious telehealth modality for delivery of interventions. Result from this pilot study resulted in funding of a RO1 NINR study in progress. In addition to the use of the HB, the current RO1 study is also measuring activity and estimated energy expenditure with the use of the RT3 accelerometer and has been used in research since 1992. This presentation will discuss current study results as well as issues related to the use of a telehealth intervention.
