Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring for Heart Failure

Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring for Heart Failure: A New Era of Heart Failure Management

Authors: Hernandez, Gabriel A.; Navas, Viviana; Chaparro, Sandra

Despite the development of noninvasive tools as echocardiography, right-sided heart catheterization remains an integral part of the cardiovascular evaluation. In the last decade, better understanding of the hemodynamic process before heart failure decompensation led to improvement of outpatient strategies to prevent it. Advances in implantable wireless technology now allow frequent and direct measurement of intracardiac filling pressures, which can be monitored by health care providers to help tailor therapy to reduce filling pressures and hospital readmission rates.
