Wireless pulmonary artery haemodynamic monitoring in chronic heart failure: a randomised controlled trial.
Abraham WT, Adamson PB, Bourge RC et al.; CHAMPION Trial Study Group.
Editor’s note: Over one-quarter of patients with heart failure (HF) will be readmitted with decompensated HF (DHF) within 1 month of being discharged from the hospital. Advances in medical therapy have failed to improve this trend, which is a cause of excessive hospitalization, financial burden, and morbidity to both patients and the medical system.
