New Heart Equipment

Baptist Health Corbin recently partnered with Sensible Medical to reduce hospital readmissions for heart failure patients by using a new piece of equipment called the ReDS device.The device was originally created by the Israeli Army to look through walls. It is now monitoring fluid in patients lungs by wrapping the device over your shoulder and covering the front and back side of your lungs. It takes the device about 45 seconds to determine how much fluid is in your lungs.”Baptist Health Corbin has only been using the device for six months, but doctors say they have seen positive improvement rates on readmission since.
