About the CardioMEMS HF System

The CardioMEMS™ HF System allows clinicians to monitor heart failure patients’ pulmonary artery (PA) pressure for proactive and actionable heart failure (HF) management and treatment. With early indications of worsening heart failure, you can remotely make adjustments to care to help slow the progression of heart failure, often before patients feel symptoms.

The CardioMEMS HF System is proven to:

  • Aid physicians in preventing worsening heart failure1 and lowering mortality rates2
  • Significantly reduce heart failure hospitalizations3,4
  • Improve quality of life in New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III patients hospitalized for heart failure in the previous 12 months5

Indications

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 12 months. 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.
