Heart Failure Service continues success story

21 July 2022

Logan Hospital's Heart Failure Service is continuing to thrive since it was established in 2019 to meet demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Heart Failure Service CNC Angie Luo said the telehealth virtual clinics were vital at a time where dynamic changes were happening every day.

"The service was one of very few heart failure services to commence virtual exercise gym sessions state-wide," she said.

"The number of telehealth clinics provided by the service has increased significantly from only eight in July 2020 to 44 in January this year and we have been able to provide virtual exercise gym sessions when face-to-face exercise was forced to close due to COVID outbreaks."

Angie said the service now supported both virtual and face-to-face exercise gym sessions to clients with heart failure to accommodate their individual needs.

"The feedback we have received has been very positive. One participant was 90-years-old and he completed 12 weeks of exercise gym virtually with the support of Heart Failure Service team.

"He was very confident using technology and said it was as good and effective as participating in person."
