Heart Failure patients are often prone to rapid changes in the amount of fluid they carry in their lungs and legs. Small increases in congestion – that may or may not be detected by a scale – can cause significant worsening in their symptoms and prevent them from participating in their everyday activities.
The ReDS™ system is a noninvasive tool that allows providers to rapidly – and accurately – measure lung fluid in Heart Failure patients at home. Measurements take 45 seconds and can be performed by caregivers daily, or as needed, when symptoms present themselves. The use of the ReDS™ system can improve symptoms through early detection and treatment, and may also lead to superior outcomes. Recent clinical research has shown an 87% reduction in Heart Failure readmission rates for patients treated with a ReDS™ system at home for three months post-discharge versus those who were treated with usual care alone.
