Vixiar is a company spun-out of Johns Hopkins Medicine with original investment from VIC Technology Venture Fund.  Invented by Dr Silber as a cardiologist at Hopkins looking for better way to diagnose worsening heart failure, Vixiar’s Indicor device non-invasively estimates cardiac filling pressure, the earliest warning of worsening heart failure. Heart failure patients are readmitted to the hospital at a high rate due to undetected congestion which leads to acute symptoms.
