CardioMEMS HF System

How CardioMEMS HF System Remote PA Pressure Monitoring Works

The CardioMEMS™ HF System provides pulmonary artery (PA) pressure remote monitoring using a small sensor. Permanently implanted in the distal pulmonary artery via a safe right heart catheterization procedure, the sensor measures changes in pulmonary artery pressure. These changes are a surrogate measure for fluid retention in the lungs caused by worsening heart failure.

Patient-initiated sensor readings are wirelessly transmitted to a secure website for clinicians to access and review. Directly monitoring PA pressure not only alerts you if a patient’s heart failure is worsening, it also allows you to intervene earlier, adjusting medication or making other treatment changes, often before a patient experiences any symptoms.

The Remote CardioMEMS HF System Sends Pulmonary Artery Pressure Data from Patients’ Homes to You

  • The PA sensor is inserted via right heart catheterization
  • Patient takes daily sensor reading from wherever they are using the portable CardioMEMS™ Patient Electronics System
  • Data wirelessly transmitted to™ Patient Care Network, a secure website that easily presents PA pressure data to inform proactive treatment modifications
  • Clinician reviews data and contacts patient, as necessary

CardioMEMS Hospital System

The CardioMEMS™ Hospital System is intuitively designed to support procedural efficiency, streamline clinical workflow practices and improve pulmonary artery pressure monitoring, so you have more time to focus on patient care.

CardioMEMS HF Stand Patient Care Network (PCN) Remote Monitoring Platform

The Patient Care Network (PCN) is the only remote monitoring platform that presents pulmonary artery (PA) pressure data as actionable information. This information can guide earlier, more appropriate intervention for each patient.

The platform integrates remote PA pressure data with Implanted Electronic Device (IED) diagnostics, such as:

  • AT/AF burden
  • Percent ventricular pacing
  • Patient activity
  • Day and night heart rate
  • VT/VF events with antitachycardia (ATP) and shock therapies

myCardioMEMS™ Mobile App for Patients and Caregivers – At Home PA Pressure Monitoring

Once a patient is implanted with the CardioMEMS HF System, they may opt to stay engaged in their care by using the myCardioMEMS patient app. Caregivers can also create an account on the app, to provide visibility to how often readings are being uploaded and the messages being sent from the care team.

With the myCardioMEMS app, patients will:

  • Receive custom messages from their care team to give peace of mind that their care is being monitored remotely.
  • Receive notifications to adjust heart failure medications or make lifestyle changes based on their PA pressure readings, without needing to be seen in the clinic.
  • Get reminders to take their heart failure medication.
  • See real-time transmission status of CardioMEMS HF System readings.
  • View history of daily transmissions of readings.
