Episode #2:

Cracking the Case of the HFpEF Patient

Dr. Phil Adamson interviews Dr. Andrew J. Sauer
February 3, 2021

Patients with preserved heart failure are notoriously hard to diagnose and manage. In this episode, Dr. Andrew J. Sauer, Chief of Advanced Heart Failure Therapies Division and Associate Professor at the University of Kansas Health System will explain the symptoms and diagnostic findings consistent with HFpEF patients. He will discuss how the use of PA pressure monitoring with the CardioMEMS™ HF System, the only proven solution for HFpEF patients,1-4 can help optimize GDMT and reduce hospitalizations for this hard to manage patient population. Also discussed is the impact of COVID-19 on the treatment strategy for HFpEF patients.
