CardioMEMS: An Advanced Warning System for Congestive Heart Failure Patients

Event Details

Patients with Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) know the symptoms - fatigue, shortness of breath, swollen legs and ankles, increased water weight, and other conditions that make even simple daily activities challenging. These symptoms may develop quickly and can lead to repeated hospitalizations for some patients.

CardioMEMS is a sensor that is implanted into the patient's pulmonary artery to record heart rate and blood pressure continuously, allowing cardiologists to detect and address signs of heart failure before the symptoms fully develop. This device can help CHF patients and their doctors more effectively manage their symptoms at home and enjoy a better quality of life.
