If you suffer from condition known as heart failure, you already know that it affects quality of life in many ways. Heart failure patients can now be monitored remotely while they continue with daily activities and enjoy their lives. Ultimately, patients have a better quality of life just knowing they are being monitored.
Baptist Heart physicians place an implantable battery-free sensor on the distal pulmonary artery that continuously measures the heart rate along with systolic, diastolic, and mean pressures. This sensor tracks the pulmonary artery pressure and heart rate. Patients send readings to the physicians’ office and the physician can address any issues with a change in medication and usually without an office visit.
