Project Title
Device for at-home monitoring of jugular venous pressure
Design Challenge
Congestive heart failure (CHF) patients manage their condition by taking diuretic medication to reduce fluid retention; however, current methods for assessing fluid volume are inaccessible and inaccurate. Jugular venous pressure (JVP) is an important but underutilized metric for assessing fluid volume. We aim to design a non-invasive device for patients to accurately and regularly track their JVP, enabling better management of medication dosage and reducing hospitalizations.
