Cardiological interventions have also lacked risk free, continuous hemodynamic monitoring; several studies stress the importance of beat-to-beat blood pressure during cardiological interventions.
Noninvasive blood pressure and cardiac output are reliable tools to guide cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), whereas systolic blood pressure has the highest reliability and accuracy. Furthermore, a prompt rise of systolic blood pressure just after CRT was shown to predict short and long-term clinical outcome, and differentiate between responding and non-responding patients.
In addition, continuous monitoring of blood pressure allows for a safer implantation procedure.
CNAP® allows for blood pressure monitoring during the implantation procedure as well as being an indicator for optimal CRT-adjustment.
