The CardioMEMS HF System is the first and only FDA-approved heart failure monitoring device to considerably improve quality of life for congestive heart failure patient.
REVOLUTIONIZING HEART CARE
The heart, that ever-incredible muscular organ which pumps blood throughout the body, provides the essence of life.
Indeed, a healthy heart is critical to a body’s wellbeing, and doctors have long sought ways to monitor the heart to ensure the muscle stays strong for years to come. With each new technological breakthrough, doctors have been better able to understand the health and function of this highly complex organ.
Yet with even all the incredible medical technology that continues to evolve by leaps and bounds, cardiologists – the doctors who specialize in the heart – have long been challenged with treating the millions of patients who suffer from congestive heart failure, or CHF.
Dr. Thomas Kong, an interventional cardiologist for nearly 20 years, said a new heart monitoring device will revolutionize how doctors treat patients with CHF, significantly reduce hospital visits and improve the quality of life for the 5 million Americans afflicted with the heart disorder.
