The CardioMEMS™ HF System

St. Jude Medical is proud to introduce a new tool for comprehensive heart failure care. The CardioMEMS™ HF System is the first and 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.1

When used by clinicians to manage heart failure, the CardioMEMS HF System is:

  • Safe and reliable – demonstrated 98.6% freedom from device or system complications1
  • Clinically proven – reduced HF admissions by 37%1
  • Proactive and personalized – patient management through direct monitoring of PA pressure and titration of medications

Northwell Health data confirms patient benefits when managed with the CardioMEMS™ HF System

Dr. Amit Alam presented data at the 2016 ACC Annual Scientific Sessions showing a statistically significant improvement in exercise capacity and quality of life in heart failure patients managed with the CardioMEMS™ HF System compared to standard-of-care HF management.3

Newly Published CHAMPION Clinical Trial Analysis Demonstrates the Link between PA Pressure Monitoring Interventions and Decreased HF Hospitalizations

A new manuscript by Dr. M.R. Costanzo, et al. titled, "Interventions Linked to Decreased Heart Failure Hospitalizations During Ambulatory Pulmonary Artery Pressure Monitoring”2 has been published online in the Journal of American College of Cardiology: Heart Failure. This is the first publication to demonstrate the relationship between pulmonary artery pressure-guided interventions and the significant reduction in heart failure hospitalizations observed in the CHAMPION Clinical Trial.1
