Detecting Elevated Cardiac Filling Pressure
It is widely believed that improving the subclinical detection of congestion in heart failure patients could substantially reduce the number of hospitalizations.
Pressure increases occur earlier than weight changes and other physical symptoms do, and also earlier than impedance changes. Monitoring pressure changes presents an opportunity to act earlier in the progression of heart failure decompensation and possibly inform discharge decisions, treatment interventions and the need for hospitalizations.
Vixiar Indicor is designed to detect changes in Left Ventricular End Diastolic Pressure (LVEDP) non-invasively in a easy to use, point of care device.
