Research from the University of Louisville has found that the Abiomed Impella 2.5 heart pump helps reduce the risk of acute kidney injury—even in patients with preexisting kidney disease—when physicians are trying to complete a high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (HRPCI).

AliveCor has introduced Kardia Pro, a cloud-based software platform that allows physicians to monitor patients who use the corresponding mobile electrocardiogram, Kardia Mobile.

Though oral breathing devices improve sleep in those with obstructive sleep apnea, new research shows the devices may not reduce risk factors associated with developing heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases.

Current treatments for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, including catheter ablation, can be relatively invasive. New research shows physicians could treat patients just as effectively using carbon ions in a non-invasive procedure.

Siemens announced Nov. 10 that it plans on spinning off its healthcare business into a separate, public company.
