Abstract

The purpose of this pilot study was to test the impact of a symptom management intervention (using a device called the Health Buddy) on recovery outcomes (symptom evaluation and response and postoperative problems) of elderly coronary artery bypass graft patients at time of discharge, at 2, 4, and 6 weeks after surgery, and at 6 months after surgery. While there were no statistically significant differences found for many of the study variables, there were trends in the intervention group of more improvement for many of the outcome variables, supporting the need for a randomized clinical trial.
