Orthopedic

The P4P testing protocol has clinical relevance in the orthopedic space because it is a good wellness tool used pre-surgery to identify circulatory and diabetic issues.

Autonomic Nervous System Test

  • We report the heart-rate variability with beat-to-beat blood pressure in the patient after deep-breathing, head-tilt and Valsalva maneuver tests and compare to base-line.
     

  • Many diseases of the nervous system identified.

Ankle-Brachial Index Test

  • A measurement of the ratio of blood pressure of the upper and lower body.
     

  • Results indicate if the patient is suffering from vascular disease.
     

  • Ability to test the vascular system at the micro-level.

 
 

proven standards of care

Associations-Tall.png

Testing of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) is the recommended standard of care by the American Diabetes Association for patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

Associations-Tall.png

The American Heart Association Practice Guidelines for the management of patients with peripheral artery disease include the measurements of ankle-brachial index (ABI) in adults over 50 years old with a history of smoking, diabetes, or circulation problems, and all adults over 70 years old.

Early detection is the key to successful treatment.
