What is the CardioMEMS HF System?

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.

The CardioMEMS HF System has helped more than 35,000 patients, like Bob, take control of their heart failure and live their best life.

“It makes life easy for me, so I’m grateful”
