New Multicenter Study Finds That Cardiac Function Measured During Stress Testing With Cheetah Medical's BIOREACTANCE(R) Noninvasive Technology Offers New Insights Into Heart Failure
Date:10/2/2009

tinely monitor heart failure patients without the significant limitations of expired breath gas technologies.

Matthew Maurer MD, Director of the Clinical Cardiovascular Research Laboratory for the Elderly, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center and the study's Primary Investigator, said: "We continually search for practical means of assessing the status of our heart failure patients that are useful both for routine clinical practice and for clinical research. Although the usefulness of measuring oxygen consumption is well established, these data suggest that additional physiologic and prognostic information can be obtained using the NICOM, which is as easy to measure as an electrocardiogram and does not require special training for its interpretation."

Daniel Burkhoff, M.D., Ph.D., Medical Director of Cheetah Medical, an Adjunct Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical School and a leading clinical researcher in the field of heart failure added, "With the results of this study showing good correlations to oxygen consumption and several prior independent studies showing that peak cardiac power can be even more predictive of outcomes, we are encouraged that we will see these measurements used more often in a variety of settings. Currently, the NICOM appears to offer the simplest solution for clinicians to measure cardiac output and power during exercise. We are planning a large multicenter study to confirm the prior smaller studies to prove the utility of peak cardiac power for predicting the risks of hospitalizations, the need for heart transplant, left ventricular assist devices and mortality."
