Multiple cArdiac seNsors for mAnaGEment of Heart Failure (MANAGE-HF) - Phase I Evaluation of the Integration and Safety of the HeartLogic Multisensor Algorithm in Patients With Heart Failure.
BACKGROUND: Patients with heart failure (HF) and reduced ejection fraction suffer from a relapsing and remitting disease course, where early treatment changes may improve outcomes. We assessed the clinical integration and safety of the HeartLogic multisensor index and alerts in HF care. METHODS: The Multiple cArdiac seNsors for mAnaGEment of Heart Failure (MANAGE-HF) study enrolled 200 patients with HF and reduced ejection fraction (<35%), New York Heart Association functional class II-III symptoms, implanted with a cardiac resynchronization therapy-defibrillator or and implantable cardioverter defibrillator, who had either a hospitalization for HF within 12 months or unscheduled visit for HF exacerbation within 90 days or an elevated natriuretic peptide concentration (brain natriuretic peptide [BNP] of ≥150 pg/mL or N-terminal pro-BNP [NT-proBNP] of ≥600 pg/mL). This phase included the development of an alert management guide and evaluated changes in medical treatment, natriuretic peptide levels, and safety. RESULTS: The mean age of participants was 67 years, 68% were men, 81% were White, and 61% had a HF hospitalization in prior 12 months. During follow-up, there were 585 alert cases with an average of 1.76 alert cases per patient-year. HF medications were augmented during 74% of the alert cases. HF treatment augmentation within 2 weeks from an initial alert was associated with more rapid recovery of the HeartLogic Index. Five serious adverse events (0.015 per patient-year) occurred in relation to alert-prompted medication change. NTproBNP levels decreased from median of 1316 pg/mL at baseline to 743 pg/mL at 12 months (P < .001). CONCLUSIONS: HeartLogic alert management was safely implemented in HF care and may optimize HF management. This phase supports further evaluation in larger studies.
