The WORLD’S FASTEST Ankle-Brachial Index (ABPI)
Early detection of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) prevents serious complications.
It’s important to discover blocked arteries in the early stage to prevent serious complications.
If the disease is not discovered early enough or treated the right way, it can have dangerous outcomes, such as heart attack, stroke, ulceration or amputation.
Most patients are asymptomatic, nearly 70% of the patients do not feel any pain or changes in the lower extremities. In the new ESC guidelines, the true threat for PAD disease is the group of patients who do not feel any symptoms, but they may have a severe disease. This can be due to their incapacity to move enough to reveal symptoms. This group is called “masked LEAD (Lower Extremity Artery Disease)”
DETERMINE compression in WOUND CARE
ABI for safe compression
Arterial assessment should be performed before assigning any level of compression therapy to rule-out a possible underlying arterial condition, as adequate arterial blood flow in lower extremities prior to compression therapy, or wound debridement is crucial for the wound healing potential.
ACHIEVE better outcomes in CARDIOLOGY
Every cardiology PATIENT AT RISK
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is associated with other cardiovascular complications. Its prevalence increases with age; as the world’s populations grow older, so does the number of PAD patients.
Everybody in the risk group should be screened for PAD or LEAD.
Patients with clinical suspicion and clinical conditions:
- Unnoticeable pulse in lower extremities and/or arterial bruit
- Typical intermittent claudication or symptoms suggestive for LEAD
- Non-healing lower extremity wound
- Atherosclerotic diseases: CAD, any PADs
- AAA, CKD, heart failure
- Measurement of ABI in 1 minute
- Simultaneous measurement
- Results in 1 minute
- No human error
- Accurate in case of severe disease
- Using oscillometry and volume plethysmography, MESI ABPI MD provides reliable results even in patients with severe disease. Thanks to an improved error detection system, MESI ABPI MD will alert the operator to any irregularities which have occurred during the measurement process instead of providing a falsely negative or positive result. Even with the absence of oscillations, the device will analyse the pulse waveform and warn the operator about the presence of severe PAD.
- Blood Pressure measurement
- This is not just a medical device for Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI); this is a medical device for the simple, objective and accurate measurement of ABI and blood pressure.
- The expertly developed MESI ABPI MD has two measurement modes:
Simultaneous measurement of the left ABI, the right ABI, blood pressure and heart rate.
Stand-alone measurement of brachial blood pressure and heart rate.
Therefore, MESI ABPI MD should be used as a screening tool on patients in cardiovascular risk group visiting every primary healthcare facility.
- Pulse Volume recording
- In addition to Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) measurement, MESI ABPI MD provides Pulse Volume Recording (PVR), which is a waveform interpreted by pattern recognition. Combining both the ABI and PVR represents the best practice in evaluating the presence and severity of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).
- Report print-out
- MESIresults computer software supplements the measurement of ABI and provides user-friendly documentation of the results.
- It provides a secure database for your results and a detailed measurement analysis, along with the pulse waveform interpretation.
- The measurement report can be equipped with your facility’s information, printed out, archived as PDF or exported for further research (of size >25nm)
