Initial screening for vascular disease
usually involves the use of an upper-arm blood pressure cuff
device, which has been employed since the 1890's. This
method can provide some information, yet it is limited in
terms of assessing blood vessel health.
Cardiovascular specialists and physicians
spend considerable effort on evaluating heart function,
including electrocardiograms (ECGs), echocardiograms and
stress tests, but they are limited in their ability to
assess the functional and structural abnormality of the
arteries prior to the late phase of arterial obstruction.
Beyond the limitations of the data provided, cost and time
are often critical factors in consideration of these tests.
As a physician using the CVProfilor® System,
you now have a powerful new tool and advanced technology
providing you with cardiovascular parameters specific to the
health of arteries. In minutes, an easy-to-understand report
is generated and precise data is available for identifying
patients at risk for cardiovascular disease.
This non-invasive system is capable of
measuring both large and small artery compliance. The
CVProfilor® System's sensitivity to early arterial changes
provides highly detailed data for assessing whether patients
have potential underlying vascular disease, as well as
developing an outline of patient-specific risk factors.
The CVProfilor® System was developed
specifically for use in physicians' offices and clinics in
the U.S. and can easily and successfully become an important
tool in your current patient evaluation process.
Today, over 650 CVProfilor® systems have been sold in over
30 countries worldwide.
