In this episode, we’ll dive deep into the Heart Failure business at Abbott. First we’ll connect with Philip Adamson, MD, chief medical officer of the group. Dr. Adamson uses an explanation of CardioMEMS to give a vivid portrait of how patients live with heart failure. Technology, he says, makes turns those patients into their own health care workers.

This podcast is sponsored by KNF.

Then, we’ll talk with Kevin Bourque, vice president of research and development, and Robert Kormos, division VP, global affairs of heart failure, about the advances of Heartmate 3. Both also detail how Abbott is working to help children suffering from the condition.

Dr. Kormos also shares the most gratifying part of his job.

The entire editorial staff joins the podcast to share their personal top stories of 2021. News includes mentions from Vicarious Surgical, ResMed, Philips, Pfizer, BioNTech, Abbott, Dexcom and Insulet.

Happy New Year!!! We'll see you in 2022.
