The prevalence of chronic heart failure in China continues to rise. Continuing nursing care is an emerging nursing model that is an extension of hospital care. WeChat is a common and good real-time social application with high interactivity and is utilized frequently in the medical field
This study explored the impact of WeChat platform-based health management on the treatment of patients with severe chronic heart failure.
The study aimed to explore the significance of health management based on WeChat platform in the treatment of patients with severe chronic heart failure.
In May 2017, a group study of 120 patients with chronic heart failure grade III-IV heart function classified by the New York Heart Association was conducted at our hospital.
The left ventricular ejection fraction, stroke output, and 6-min walking distance (6MWD) increased, and the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTnT) and N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) decreased in both groups, as compared to those before the intervention. Further, cardiac function during the 6MWD, hs-cTnT, and NT-proBNP improved significantly in the observation group after intervention (P < 0.05).
Health management based on the WeChat platform can improve the self-care ability and compliance of patients with severe chronic heart failure, reduce the occurrence of adverse cardiovascular events, and avoid rehospitalization.
Health management based on the WeChat platform can play a greater role in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
