Heart Failure Sensor Suite
Heart Failure Sensor Suite (HFSS) empowers you to discover meaningful insights into your patient’s condition for better proactive heart failure care.
Heart failure hospitalisations are the most costly aspects of treatment for these patients.1,2
The REM HF study demonstrated that in a typical ICD/CRT-D population with heart failure 40% of cardiovascular hospitalisations were related to heart failure decompensation.3 Heart failure hospitalisations were associated with an 8-fold increase in mortality and a 9-fold increase in recurrent hospitalisations.4
Heart Failure Sensor Suite technology
|Our Sensors||What clinicians ask/do during a physical examination|
|Sleep Incline||"How many pillows do you sleep on at night?"|
|Respiratory Rate||"Are you out of breath/have difficulty breathing?"|
|Activity Level||"Have you been feeling tired?"|
|Weight||"Have you gained weight?" (check leg or abdominal swelling)|
|Blood Pressure||Measure blood pressure (hypertensive? hypotensive?)|
|Night Heart Rate||Yes|
|RV Rating during AT/AF||Yes|
|% LV Paced||Yes|
|Heart Rate Variability (SDANN)||Yes|
|Daily Heart Rate||Yes|
Heart failure management report
- User friendly navigation system
- Easy Access:
Available in the programmer and integrated into LATITUDE™ System.
- Easy Interpretation:
Enhanced data display resolution with three day average trend line and dynamic scaling for optimal visualisation of trend changes.
Worsening heart failure may be associated with a variability in respiration rate
- The Respiratory Sensor uses transthoracic impedance measurements to collect respiration-related data, specifically respiration rate and tidal volume.
- Respiration rate and tidal volume are combined to produce additional respiration metrics.
