SOUTHWEST DUTCHESS, N.Y. -- Heart failure is one of the most common reasons for hospital admissions among those 65 years and older. But help is on the horizon with the introduction of a new FDA-approved device designed to help manage the disease called the CardioMEMS HF.

For local residents interested in learning more about the device, and whether it would help them improve their health, the Vassar Brothers Medical Center will hold a seminar on Tuesday, Dec. 8, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Conference Room B of the medical center at 45 Reade Place, Poughkeepsie.

Dr. James Lyons of The Heart Center, a division of Hudson Valley Cardiovascular Practice, P.C., will discuss the CardioMEMS HF device, which is implanted during a minimally invasive procedure. The device provides doctors data to help better manage heart failure care of their patients.

“We’re excited to introduce this new technology to local communities,” Lyons said. “It’s been proven to help better the quality of life for people with heart failure.”

Lyons is board certified in cardiovascular disease and nuclear cardiology. He is also the first cardiologist in the Hudson Valley to be board certified in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.
