Study Of An Implanted Heart Pressure Sensor In People With Heart Failure

Description

Seeking adult men and women who have heart failure and are at risk of having episodes of worsening heart failure for a study of an implanted heart pressure sensor.

Overview

We are evaluating whether a heart pressure sensor that is implanted into the heart and is FDA approved for a select group of patients works in more patients. The study will also learn if using the device’s data for other indicators of heart failure might help people get care sooner and avoid having to go to the hospital.

What we're hoping for

We hope that the heart pressure sensor will better alert people with heart failure and their care providers to changes in heart health so that they can get needed care sooner.
