Up until now, medical devices have been in the background when it comes to the novel coronavirus. The bigger stories in the industry came from diagnostic firms either developing virus detection or antibody tests.

However, that all changed when Danvers, MA-based Abiomed was granted Emergency Use Authorization for the Impella RP to include patients suffering from COVID-19 related right heart failure or decompensation, including pulmonary embolism.

I give my take on why this lone EUA could be the start of more device-related solutions regarding symptoms associated with COVID-19.
