Abstract

See full text

A system and method for generating baseline data for automated management of edema is disclosed. Collected device measures are accumulated to record raw physiometry for a patient, wherein the patient is regularly monitored by an implantable medical device, beginning with an initial observation period. Derived device measures are generated to provide derivative physiometry determined at least in part from the collected device measures. A patient status indicator is determined by analyzing the collected and derived device measures to diagnose a pathophysiology indicative of an absence, onset, progression, regression, and status quo of edema, wherein the collected and derived device measures and the patient status indicator originating from the initial observation period include baseline data.
