NBC News

A potentially life-saving medical breakthrough could treat heart failure without the patient ever having to go to a doctor’s office. This new technology is being used by Dr. David Shavelle at the Keck Hospital of USC. Alfredo Delatorre is one of the first recipients of the new device. “This will significantly improve his quality of life. It will keep him out of the hospital and it will potentially reduce visits to the clinic so he can spend more time at home with his family ” Shavelle said.
