At Strataca Systems™ we believe that complex, expensive medical problems require effective solutions.  Few problems are as a large or expensive as acute decompensated heart failure, which leads to over 1 million hospital admissions in the US each year.  The primary reason for hospitalization is congestion (fluid overload) that leads to shortness of breath.  Since the kidneys are responsible for fluid management, as renal function is compromised, the morbidity, mortality and costs for these patients rise.  Strataca is developing patented technology to improve urine output and decrease congestion.
