CardioMEMSTM HF System Post Approval Study

Brief description of study

CardioMEMSTM HF System Post Approval Study

Detailed Study Description

The CardioMEMS HF System provides a method to measure pulmonary artery (PA) pressures by using a small wireless sensor (about the size of a paperclip) implanted into the pulmonary artery (a vessel close to your heart). Once implanted, the sensor communicates through radio frequency to an antenna contained in a pillow connected to an electronic unit and then transmits this valuable information to a secure website for your doctor to review. You will be able to take these PA pressure measurements yourself at home. In addition to these home readings, your PA pressures can also be obtained in the physician’s office, clinic, or hospital. Your doctor can access the secure website to view your measurements allowing him/her to make earlier treatment changes (usually changes in medications) to manage your heart failure remotely.
