About 50 % of the adult population of Germany is suffering from hypertension – but many of them do not receive an appropriate treatment due to a lack of knowledge or awareness. High blood pressure does not hurt but it is causing a massive damage in the vascular system. The risk of getting a myocardial infarction or a stroke is highly increasing.
Measuring Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) and Augmentation Index (AIx) are enabling the doctor to discover vascular aging in an early stage, allowing early therapy and supervision. Pulse Wave Velocity therefore is directly measuring vascular stiffness. Both parameters, PWV and AIx are recommended by the European Society of Hypertension (ESH).
The VASCULAR EXPLORER by enverdis is offering the measurement of both parameters. There values are used to generate age graphs, displaying the “age” of a patient’s vessels compared to the biological age.
Additionally to the mentioned parameters, central and peripheral blood pressure are measured as well and displayed graphically. Furthermore the ABI (Ankle-Brachial-Index), a well known indicator for PAOD, is calculated. All measurement results are displayed graphically in a traffic-light system, supporting the compliance of patients.
