 Project objective

Postoperative complications for high-risk patients going through open heart surgeries are a major cause of morbidity and mortality and is responsible for a very large proportion of the overall health and socioeconomic burden of illness. In Switzerland for example, it is estimated the costs increase by 57 % post operation for high-risk patients with pre-operative complexities. The total cost of postoperative complications in Europe alone amounts to approximately €6 billion annually. CARDIACCS proposes a novel invasive medical device “CARDISENSE” (CARDIAC SENSOR) which assists continuous monitoring and diagnosis of patients going through open heart surgeries. Our initial studies indicate that CARDISENSE is well suited to make an immediate impact on the diagnostic accuracy in perioperative myocardial ischemia. CARDISENSE belongs to the cardiac monitoring and diagnostic devices market, which is forecasted to reach at US$12.3 billion by 2015 at a CAGR of 11%. Such devices are used to detect and feedback abnormal episodes of electrical functioning of the heart. None of these devices is specific for monitoring and diagnosis of perioperative heart surgery complications. CARDISENSE is a niche in this market and can be used in all cardiac surgical procedures for perioperative diagnosis and monitoring, becoming a new “gold standard”. CARDIACCS IP strategy is very strong. The background knowledge has already been protected and is in the ownership of CARDIACCS. CARDISENSE is an opportunity for CARDIACCS to establish a niche in the “perioperative cardiac surgery” diagnostic and monitoring market and maintain the European competitiveness. CARDISENSE will positively impact clinicians and patient and support the sustainability of healthcare system through early stage diagnose and treatment of perioperative cardiac surgery complications.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "CARDISENSE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
