CardioMEMSTM HF System Post Approval Study


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.

The FDA approved the CardioMEMS HF System for commercial use in the USA in May of 2014. Part of the FDA’s responsibility to the public is to make sure that medical devices are safe and work correctly after they are approved. As such, the FDA has requested the sponsor of the device, St. Jude Medical, conduct a Post Approval Study (PAS). This study can give patients, doctors, the sponsor, and the FDA valuable information on the safety, effectiveness and reliability of the CardioMEMS HF System.
