BETTER HEART FAILURE MANAGEMENT FROM HOME

If you have NYHA Class III heart failure and have been hospitalized in the past year, it may be time to talk to your doctor about a unique approach to heart failure management designed to keep you at home and healthy. It’s called the CardioMEMS™ HF System.

The CardioMEMS HF System is the only FDA-approved pulmonary artery pressure monitor that can improve your quality of life, and could reduce your risk for hospitalization.1

HOW CAN THE CARDIOMEMS™ HF SYSTEM HELP YOU STAY AHEAD OF HEART FAILURE?

Pulmonary artery (PA) pressure monitoring provides early detection of worsening heart failure, long before symptoms such as weight gain or blood pressure. Daily pulmonary pressure readings from home can proactively inform your care team of any needed adjustments to your medications and/or lifestyle without a hospital or clinic visit.

HOW DOES REMOTE PA PRESSURE MONITORING WORK?

  • A tiny pressure-sensor is inserted into your pulmonary artery through a short, low-risk procedure.
  • You simply take a daily measurement of the sensor from the comfort of your home.
  • Your healthcare provider reviews the information received from the sensor and contacts you if changes to your medications or treatment plan are necessary.
  • Regular monitoring from your home allows you and your heart failure medical team to get ahead of heart failure before it progresses.

STAYING CONNECTED WITH THE MyCardioMEMS APP

Stay engaged in your care by using the myCardioMEMS™ app. The app allows you to see what days you uploaded readings and you can get reminders to take your heart failure medication. Your care team can also send you messages directly through the app about your readings and if you need to adjust your care plan. All of this can be done from the comfort of your home and without needing to go into the clinic. Learn more here.
