Strategies for Practice Management

The CardioMEMS™ HF System Program Practice Guide is a comprehensive resource to help clinicians more efficiently manage clinical programs for heart failure patients who have received a CardioMEMS HF System.

Much of the information in the Program Practice Guide is based on:

  • In-depth clinician feedback¹ on the common practices and attitudes of more than 160 heart failure clinicians managing heart failure patients on the CardioMEMS HF System at over 125 facilities in the U.S.
  • The clinical practices² of Philip B. Adamson, M.D., MSc, FACC, a CHAMPION trial³ principal investigator.

Medical care of the patient is the sole responsibility of the acting practitioner. These resources are not intended to replace the judgment of the acting practitioner nor the establishment of final protocols within the hospital setting.
