An ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a simple, non-invasive test used to determine if you have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). PAD is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs. When you develop PAD, your extremities (usually your legs) don’t receive enough blood flow. This causes symptoms, most notably leg pain when walking. It is also likely to be a sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in your arteries (atherosclerosis). This condition may be reducing blood flow to your heart and brain, as well as your legs.
Blood Pressure Holter
Blood Pressure (BP) Holter Monitoring (also known as Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring), is a small device, like the size of a mobile phone, that is used to regularly measure and record blood pressure over a 24 hour period. It is a simple, effective method of monitoring your Blood Pressure over an extended period of time. It gives your physician valuable information about your blood pressure, heart rate, pulse pressure, and mean arterial pressure among other things.
Dialysis Access Mapping Procedure (DAMP)
The Dialysis Access Mapping Procedure (DAMP) is mapping of the upper extremity and is a necessary prerequisite to the creation of any hemodialysis access. It is utilized to evaluate arterial inflow, venous outflow and the adequacy of the venous system to support an autogenous or prosthetic access in the extremity. It will maximize utilization of autogenous fistulae while reducing the need for prosthetic grafts and catheters.
A DEXA scan (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) is a bone density test that assesses whether you have normal bone density, low bone density (also referred to as osteopenia), or osteoporosis. Typically, a DEXA scan measures your bone density at the hip or spine, which is where most osteoporosis-related fractures occur. A DEXA scan takes about ten minutes and is associated with minimal radiation exposure. leo.
