Congestive heart failure affects almost 23 million people worldwide, with an incidence of 2 million new patients each year. Management of heart failure requires prolonged and coordinated care for optimal management.

The CardioMEMS HF System is the only FDA-approved heart failure (HF) monitoring system proven to significantly reduce HF hospital admissions and improve quality of life in NYHA class III patients.

CardioMEMS HF System provides physicians with the pulmonary artery pressure monitoring and hemodynamic data to proactively manage their heart failure patients and has been shown to reduce heart failure hospitalizations. This has led to the European Society of Cardiology incorporating the CardioMEMS device into the clinical practice guidelines as a directed therapy management and monitoring tool for heart failure patients. This change reflects the importance of using advanced technologies for management of heart disease and heart failure.
