Pulmonary Artery Pressure Monitoring

By monitoring your pulmonary artery (PA) pressure, your doctor may be able to detect worsening heart failure even before you feel symptoms. This could allow time for a medication change, reducing your chance of ending up in the hospital.

Pulmonary artery (PA) pressure monitoring helps your doctor detect worsening heart failure conditions before you notice symptoms, allowing adjustment of medications that reduce the risk of hospitalizations.



Proactive HF Management Reduces Hospital Visits
Changes in pulmonary artery (PA) pressures are an early indicator of worsening heart failure, even before the patient notices symptoms such as shortness of breath or weight gain. The CardioMEMS™ HF System features a small pressure-sensing device that is implanted directly into the pulmonary artery during a minimally invasive procedure, enabling the patient to take PA pressure readings at home using a small bedside unit. PA pressure readings are sent wirelessly to your doctor, allowing adjustment of medication without the need for a hospital or clinic visit.
