The CardioMEMS™ HF System provides pulmonary artery (PA) pressure remote monitoring using a small sensor. Permanently implanted in the distal pulmonary artery via a safe right heart catheterization procedure, the sensor measures changes in pulmonary artery pressure. These changes are a surrogate measure for fluid retention in the lungs caused by worsening heart failure.
Patient-initiated sensor readings, taken daily from their homes, are wirelessly transmitted to a secure website for clinicians to access and review. Directly monitoring PA pressure not only alerts you if a patient’s heart failure is worsening, it also allows you to intervene earlier, adjusting medication or making other treatment changes, often before a patient experiences any symptoms.
The Merlin.net Patient Care Network (PCN) is the only remote monitoring platform that presents pulmonary artery (PA) pressure data as actionable information. This information can guide earlier, more appropriate intervention for each patient.
The platform integrates remote PA pressure data with Implanted Electronic Device (IED) diagnostics, such as:
Once a patient is implanted with the CardioMEMS HF System, they may opt to stay engaged in their care by using the myCardioMEMS patient app. Caregivers can also create an account on the app, to provide visibility to how often readings are being uploaded and the messages being sent from the care team.
The myCardioMEMS App provides your patients with daily Pulmonary Artery (PA) Pressure readings within a matter of minutes. This is the same number you use to monitor your patients heart failure.
Before your patients feel any symptoms, or have to come to the hospital, you can send them messages. This includes lifestyle modifications, and what medication changes they should make. Your patients can also designate a “caregiver” to receive and respond to messages and help to keep track of their care.
The myCardioMEMS app can be downloaded from the App store‡ for iPhone‡ mobile digital devices and on Google Play‡ for Android‡ devices.
