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.
