Abstract

Patients with cardiovascular conditions, particularly uncontrolled arrhythmias or heart failure, are considered vulnerable and their management requires a comprehensive assessment of vital signs and regular adaptation of medication [1]. Traditionally, patients are managed through face-to-face consultations in a practice or outpatient clinic. However, during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, scheduled outpatient consultations were cancelled to keep vulnerable patients out of the hospital, and face-to-face appointments were converted into teleconsultations.
