EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., June 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CHF Solutions (Nasdaq: CHFS), today announced highlights from the sponsored session from the American Association for Thoracic Surgery Annual Meeting moderated by Daniel Beckles, M.D., Ph.D. of United Health Services Hospitals in Binghamton, N.Y. The full session can be found on the company’s website at www.chf-solutions.com.
The panel, titled “Personalized Medicine: Improving Clinical Outcomes with Novel Fluid Management Strategies,” highlighted a discussion on the use of the Aquadex FlexFlow system to help manage risks associated with fluid overload in adult cardiac surgery patients. Among the key reasons cited for using the device were the ease of use for both doctors and other hospital staff, rapid patient recovery, decrease in mortality, efficient utilization of hospital resources, and the ability to personalize treatment based on the individual patient’s need. The panel included Margarita Camacho, M.D. (Newark Beth Israel), Mehdi Oloomi, M.D. (Mount Sinai Health System), and Mark Small, M.S., PA-C (Medstar Franklin Square), each of whom provided personal experience with the Aquadex FlexFlow system in their institution.
“We continue to believe that utilizing ultrafiltration in post-cardiovascular surgery provides medical personnel with an important solution to treat fluid overload. The panel highlighted that the Aquadex FlexFlow system provided a gentler methodology that conformed to the physiology of each patient. We believe that this personalized approach contributes both to the patient’s recovery and the optimal utilization of hospital resources because many patients spend less time in the intensive care unit and only patients with urgent issues are receiving additional services, rather than those patients who were simply experiencing fluid overload,” said John Erb, chairman and CEO of CHF Solutions. “We are grateful to Dr. Beckles for moderating this distinguished panel and welcome medical professionals and investors alike to view it on our website.”
