QUICK AND EASY ABI EXAMS

The Vantage ABI has everything needed to conduct fast and accurate ABI exams, including a graphic display with convenient touch-screen to navigate the system, an optional roll-stand with storage basket, a USB memory stick for data transfer and storage, four blood pressure cuffs and specific models have a built-in printer for printing ankle waveforms on adhesive-backed label paper.

P.A.D. - EARLY DETECTION IS KEY

P.A.D. is a common condition that affects 8 to 12 million people in the U.S. every year.' It is characterized by the narrowing of the arteries in the legs due to atherosclerosis. Most common among diabetics and older adults, P.A.D. is under-diagnosed and under-treated, resulting in many patients at high-risk for heart attack, stroke, leg amputation and even death. Annual testing of patients at risk is recommended by national health organizations. Early detection of P.A.D. is the key to preventing these severe cardiovascular events and the ABI exam is a common test for diagnosing RAD.

Undetected P.A.D. is associated with the following health issues:

  • 2 to 3 fold increase in mortality
  • 2 to 6 fold increase in heart attack, stroke, amputation and death
  • Severe decline in quality of life
  • Leg amputation (150,000 annually)

RAD. is more common than heart disease, cancer and stroke. Most people who have the disease may not have symptoms. In fact, less than 30% of P.A.O. patients have symptoms.' If untreated, P.A.D. can lead to critical limb ischomia (CLI) causing gangrene, resulting in possible leg amputations. The most common symptom is claudication - pain or cramping in the legs that occurs when walking or exercising and usually subsides when at rest. Too often, claudication is misinterpreted as normal aging or arthritis pain. If a patient is experiencing claudication, it is important to address it quickly and determine if the pain is due to P.A.D.
 

WHAT ARE THE RISK FACTORS AND SYMPTOMS?

  • 70+ years of age
  • Smokers 50+ years of age
  • Diabetics 50+ years of age
  • Diabetics less than 50 years of age with 1 or more risk factors (e.g. smoking)
  • Abnormal pulses during exam
  • Claudication in the leg
  • Critical limb ischomie (CLI)
