Cheetah Medical's NICOM(R) System for Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring Found to be an Effective Tool for Identification of Acute Heart Failure in the Emergency Department
Date:11/4/2010

of four sensors applied on the patient's chest or back. In this study, the system was used to monitor patients' hemodynamics around a change in patient position, also known as "orthostatic challenge". The NICOM system captured the markedly different hemodynamic response of heart failure patents as compared to the other causes of dyspnea and to accurately differentiate between heart failure and other conditions.

Rakesh Engineer, MD, FACEP, Discipline Leader, Emergency & Undifferentiated Care at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and the study's Primary Investigator, said: "Acute heart failure affects 5.8 million Americans per year, with costs exceeding $33 billion. Clinical judgment, even when combined with our best biomarkers, produces a diagnostic accuracy of only 82.5%. Clearly, new methods to determine the etiology of shortness of breath in emergency patients are needed. This study illustrates the utility of NICOM Bioreactance Technology in differentiating acute heart failure from asthma and COPD".

W. Frank Peacock, MD, FACEP, Vice Chair, Emergency Medicine Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and the study's Senior Author, said: "Outcomes in patients presenting to the emergency department with acute shortness of breath are related to appropriate and timely therapy. When therapy is delayed or inappropriate, the acute mortality rate is increased. Our data suggest that an early and accurate heart failure diagnosis can be determined by measuring hemodynamic changes using NICOM Technology."

About Acute Heart Failure and Its Diagnosis in the Emergency Department

Emergency department (ED) visits for symptoms related to heart failure are very common, responsible for about 5% of annual visits to the ED in the US. Determining the most accurate early diagnosis of heart failure remains a clinical challenge. The best currently available diagnostic laboratory tests and clinical decision-making in the emergency department yi
