CardioMEMS HF System

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 5.1 million Americans live with heart failure (HF), with 670,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Patients with heart failure are frequently hospitalized, have reduced quality of life and face a higher chance of death.

Heart failure occurs when the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's demand. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in this county.

The CardioMEMS HF System features a sensor that is implanted in the pulmonary artery (PA) during a non-surgical procedure to directly measure PA pressures, a measuring of worsening heart failure, appear before more noticeable symptoms (such as weight and blood pressure changes). The system allows patients to transmit daily sensor readings from their homes to their physician, allowing for personalized and proactive management of medication to reduce the likelihood of hospitalization. The CardioMEMS HF System is the first and only FDA-approved heart failure monitoring device that has been proven to significantly reduce hospital admissions when used by physicians to manage heart failure.
