Impact of Practice-Based Management of Pulmonary Artery Pressures in 2000 Patients Implanted with the CardioMEMS Sensor
Blood Pressure Monitoring, Ambulatory
Pulmonary Wedge Pressure
The first 2000 general-use patients managed with hemodynamic-guided heart failure care had higher PA pressures at baseline and experienced greater reduction in PA pressure over time compared with the pivotal CHAMPION clinical trial. These data demonstrate that general use of implantable hemodynamic technology in a nontrial setting leads to significant lowering of PA pressures.
