Cardiovascular Wellness Evaluation
Our state-of-the-art evaluation will reveal your
risk of heart disease and may save your life!
"For the Young at Heart" Tests:
EndoPAT (Peripheral Arterial Tone) evaluation is a non-invasive test that
looks to see if the lining of the arteries are damaged. Endothelial cells line
the inner walls of the heart and blood vessels. Damage to these cells is the
earliest clinically detectable stage of cardiovascular disease we can observe.
Normal endothelial function protects blood vessels from atherosclerosis,
hardening of the arteries, or plaque buildup.
The EndoPAT is used in advanced research programs at institutes such as the
Framingham Heart Study, The Mayo Clinic, Harvard Medical School, Mount Sinai,
New York, Cedars-Sinai, Johns Hopkins, Emory and many more.
Pulsewave Analysis (Accelerated Plethysmography)
Using a finger clip, the blood's pulsewave is followed from the time it leaves the heart and travels through the blood vessels down
to the finger. The pulsewave is a snapshot into the cardiovascular system and evaluates arterial elasticity (arterial stiffness),
which is related to atherosclerosis. Arterial stiffness is a major cardiovascular risk factor.
There is strong scientific evidence supporting the use of plethysmography as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for
cardiovascular disease and peripheral vascular disease (including primary and secondary Raynaud's phenomenon).
Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
HRV evaluates the balancing act between the sympathetic nervous system (fight and flight) and the parasympathetic nervous
system (rest and digest). An imbalance in HRV is the #1 risk factor for sudden cardiac death. The simple hand electro-sensor test
shows you a report on the balance between your heart and nervous system in minutes.
HeartSmart IMT (Intima-Media Thickness)
Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) is a measurement of the thickness of the innermost layers of the carotid artery wall by
ultrasound imaging. This is where atherosclerosis begins. Using a non-invasive ultrasound, a video of the carotids is made and then
analyzed for the presence of atherosclerosis and detection of soft and hard plaque at its earliest stages. This is very important since
soft plaque is more vulnerable to rupture and can break away from the arterial wall leading to a heart attack or stroke.
The value of carotid IMT has been recognized for its ability to detect early heart disease by the American Heart Association (AHA),
the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Society of Echocardiography.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Test
The Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Test is a non-invasive ultrasound evaluation to view the aorta, the large blood vessel in the body. The
aorta supplies blood to the abdomen, pelvis, and legs. A picture is made of the abdominal aorta and sent to our radiologist who will then
look for an aneurysm. If found, it will be measured. The closer the bulge get to 5 centimeters the more likely it is to tear. If that happens
it becomes a life threatening medical emergency. This test can identify an aneurysm and help alleviate the possibility of a rupture.
The Cardioscan software program is designed to analyze heart sounds for
the identification and classification of suspected murmurs (extra heart
sounds). Murmurs can be benign, mildly troublesome, or serious. Within
a few minutes the Cardioscan award-winning software can:
″ automatically detect suspected systolic & diastolic heart murmurs
and S1/S2 sounds;
″ quickly identify suspected murmurs that have a Class I indication for an
echocardiogram referral per ACC/AHA guidelines.
Pulse Oximetry Measurement
Pulse oximetry measures the amount of oxygen in the blood, through a finger clip test. A range of 96% to 100% oxygen in the
blood is generally considered normal. Anything below 90% could quickly lead to life-threatening complications. Knowing this is
very useful for patients with respiratory and/or cardiac problems, especially those with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
(COPD). It is also useful in diagnosing sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.
Healthy Heart Survey
A comprehensive, evidence based, computerized 40 question evaluation, designed to assess what further testing may
be appropriate as well as recommendations for any supplements or activities that may support heart health.
Testing also includes:
Blood Pressure – High blood pressure is often called the silent killer because it has no outward symptoms. Not only is it
related to hardening of the arteries, it may also be the cause of atherosclerosis or may hasten its progression.
Heart Rate – Heart rate is the number of times your heart beats in a minute. 50-80 beats per minute is considered optimal.
Measuring the pulse can give very important information about your health. Any change from normal heart rate can indicate a
Body Mass Index (BMI) and/or Body Fat Measurement– These tests are guides in diagnosing metabolic syndrome.
How to prepare for your tests
we will need to reschedule your appointment.
If you need to use it, don't hesitate. Rescheduling your test is easier than treating you for a severe asthma attack.
stomach for the ultrasound test and will need to put a stethoscope on your chest. We will provide a gown, if necessary.
these nails are too long, they may need to be trimmed. If you have acrylic nails, it may be difficult to perform part of the test.
About Cardio Crusaders
We have a significant problem in this country—heart disease. It is the number one killer in the United States, and early detection
and prevention is the key to heart health. Cardio Crusaders is a group of healthcare professionals dedicated to early detection and
prevention of cardiovascular disease. We have developed the "For the Young at Heart" program using new testing technology
that is simple and non-invasive and works beautifully with recommended supplements and actions to help improve and maintain
cardiovascular health. The preventive plan is the first of its kind and is based on Nobel Prize winning research.
There is testing for early detection of cancers and other diseases,
and now there is testing for the early detection of cardiovascular disease.
