Living Longer With HeartMate 3
CardioMEMS is helping more people live longer. That’s terrific news.
But that’s not all. The HeartMate 3 left ventricular assist device (or LVAD, also known as a heart pump) is doing even more.
Five years more, as data from the MOMENTUM 3 study of more than 1,000 people show, thanks to the only commercially approved heart pump with Full MagLev technology, which allows the device’s rotor to be “suspended” by magnetic forces.
More than 20,000 people have benefitted from HeartMate 3. It’s just the start of what’s possible for some of those 6.2 million.3
“There are too many patients who aren’t provided the opportunity to be evaluated for a heart pump,” said Keith Boettiger, vice president of Abbott's heart failure business. “With broader awareness and improved access to a heart pump, we can give these patients a chance at a longer, fuller life.”
Millions and Millions
Longer, fuller lives. Multiple. With the possibility for multitudes.
Lives like Avery’s. And Beth. And Iris. And Tiara.
As well as the lives of those who care for them, so they can rest a little easier knowing that their time together won’t be so short. It’s a commodity too many take for granted, right up until they’re running short.
These technologies are helping more people than ever before. They’re among the countless ways we’re working to reach one in three people around the world to live their best lives by 2030. That’s how we see a sustainable future: One that starts with health.
“Living (for now) with heart failure?”
How about: “Living (more of your life the way you want, and living it longer) with heart failure.”
The time is now. And it comes with the promising potential of regaining in your life what you lost to heart failure.
Say it loud, so everyone can hear.
