Most people undergoing conventional hemodialysis (three treatments of 3–4 hours/week) need to limit their fluid intake. In the initial stage, the residual kidney function possibly is high enough, so the fluid allowance is liberal. However, over time as the urine output decreases, it will become necessary to restrict fluid intake.
Heart failure (HF) patients living in rural areas have a lack of HF knowledge and poor self-care because of limited medical care access. Hearty Heart is a mobile web app that help to improve self-care which is indispensable for such patients.
Actuallly, Healthy Heart is just a prototype. A final version of the app will be soon available.
