With remote monitoring, you can gain critical information about your patient's cardiac health and heart failure progression. This connection with your patients allows you to intervene early and provide your patients with the personalized care they deserve. Learn how our connectivity and remote care devices can lead to better heart failure management.

CardioMEMS HF System and the Merlin.net Patient Care Network (PCN)

The CardioMEMS™ HF System is a pulmonary artery (PA) pressure monitoring system clinically proven to aid physicians in preventing worsening heart failure,1 lowering mortality rates2 and improving quality of life3,4 — even for HFpEF patients.5 The CardioMEMS HF System sends patient data to the Merlin.net™ Patient Care Network (PCN), so healthcare professionals have access to patients’ data transmissions via a secure website. Merlin.net PCN presents PA pressure data as actionable information to guide earlier, more appropriate intervention for each patient.

Indications, Safety & Warnings

CardioMEMS HF System

Rx Only

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions for Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use.

Indications and Usage: The CardioMEMS™ HF System is indicated for wirelessly measuring and monitoring pulmonary artery (PA) pressure and heart rate in New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III heart failure patients who have been hospitalized for heart failure in the previous year. The hemodynamic data are used by physicians for heart failure management and with the goal of reducing heart failure hospitalizations.

Contraindications: The CardioMEMS HF System is contraindicated for patients with an inability to take dual antiplatelet or anticoagulants for one month post implant.

Potential Adverse Events: Potential adverse events associated with the implantation procedure include, but are not limited to, the following: Infection, Arrhythmias, Bleeding, Hematoma, Thrombus, Myocardial infarction, Transient ischemic attack, Stroke, Death, and Device embolization.
