Over time, heart failure (also called congestive heart failure), or a weak heart, will worsen when the heart can’t pump enough blood to meet your body’s needs. Heart failure symptoms like these can limit your activities and way of life without you even realizing it.
Find a heart specialist near you who specializes in treating heart failure.
The CardioMEMS HF System is a wireless heart monitor that measures pulmonary artery pressure and heart rate for people with heart failure. If you have congestive heart failure, find a heart failure clinic near you and book a consultation.
The CardioMEMS™ PA Sensor is placed during a common procedure and allows your doctor to monitor the pulmonary artery pressure in your heart.
During this procedure, doctors access the pulmonary artery with a thin tube (called a catheter) that is guided through a vein to reach your heart.
After your CardioMEMS PA Sensor is placed, you will take daily readings remotely. It only takes a few minutes, and the information is sent to a secure website that your care team can access.
Your care team reviews the information, and will contact you if any changes to your medications or treatment plan are necessary.
