A fundamental shift in the treatment of acute decompensated heart failure

WhiteSwell is dedicated to advancing treatment of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), a primary cause of repeat hospitalization and emergency room visits.

 

Leveraging the Lymphatic System to Treat ADHF 

 

ADHF is an episode of worsening heart failure symptoms in which patients experience difficulty breathing, fatigue and swelling, due to fluid back-up in the lungs and other parts of the body. Efficient and complete removal of excess fluid in tissues is vital. Unlike current approaches, which remove fluid from the vascular system, WhiteSwell’s solution leverages the natural process of the lymphatic system to remove fluid from the interstitial system, the fluid-filled spaces in connective tissue throughout the body where most of the excess fluid caused by ADHF is located.
