What if your doctor could tell you what your risk was for heart disease and stroke, without using needles or blood work, and that no invasive or expensive testing was required? What if the answer to diagnosing heart disease could actually be right at the tip of your finger?
EndoPAT has several advantages:
- It’s the only medical device indicated for use in endothelial function assessment.
- It is non-invasive. A standard blood pressure cuff and finger probes are easily put on and removed.
- Testing is quick and easy. The doctor can complete an EndoPAT test in the office in 15 minutes
- The device provides reliable and reproducible results EndoPAT tests have provided important clinical information in more than 100 peer-reviewed publications.
- Accurately assesses the health of the heart. Growing scientific literature includes more than 100 EndoPAT publications in peer-reviewed abstracts and journals presented in major conferences.
- EndoPAT is FDA approved (2003) and CE marked
- Over 400 EndoPAT devices are now in use in over 40 countries.
As the ultimate non-invasive diagnostic cardiac tool, the EndoPAT test has the potential to become the “heart’s mammogram” by helping diagnose early heart disease in the lining of the blood vessels—the endothelium—and alerting patients to the need to initiate preventive steps to keep it from becoming a deadly killer.
Normal endothelial function protects the blood vessels from atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and plaque buildup.
The EndoPAT test, which can be performed in a doctor’s office, takes 15 minutes.
Results of the endothelial function test are automatically calculated and an EndoScore is generated, which indicates the present state of endothelial health.
How to interpret your Endopat score (EndoScore):
Red Level EndoScore: A score of 1.67 and lower indicates the need for immediate medical assessment.
Yellow Level EndoScore: A score between 1.68 and 2 indicates that you may not to appear to have additional health risks. Your endothelium is currently fine, but if you don’t take appropriate preventive steps, you may begin moving towards the Red Level and endothelial dysfunction.
Make all efforts to reduce blood cholesterol levels, stop smoking if you do, reduce body weight if too heavy, maintain a healthy blood pressure, and manage stress in your life. Managing these risk factors with simple preventive measures will help you avoid or postpone heart disease.
Green Level EndoScore: A score above 2.1 indicates that the endothelium is offering maximum protection and maintaining a healthy heart. Keep up the good work!
