More about Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Screenings with Stroke Detection Plus

 

This screening measures the blood flow through the peripheral arteries in the arms and legs and checks for blockages from plaque. We are looking for a strong even blood flow. Hardening of the arteries (due to the plaque) weakens your blood flow and increases your risk of heart disease by 4-6 times. Many clients chose this test if they have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a history of coronary artery disease.

Early detection and screening is the best way to avoid heart attack, stroke, and other long term arterial problems from Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Schedule your screening today.

What are the Peripheral Arteries?

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) mainly affects the arteries located in your arms, legs, and feet, as well as your kidneys and stomach. These arteries are responsible for the blood flow to those areas and can cause painful symptoms when this blood flow is stopped or weakened.

How does Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Happen?

PAD is a lot like carotid artery disease in that fatty deposits build up in the inner linings of the artery walls, restricting blood flow. PAD often goes undiagnosed until painful symptoms start showing up - late detection could lead to increased risk of heart attack and stroke. If you are at risk, the American Heart Association recommends you take steps to detect this disease early so you can start a treatment program with your doctor.
