Cardiovascular Health Testing
Healthy arteries are flexible and elastic - unhealthy arteries are often stiff or hard and cannot expand - which places extra strain on the heart to pump blood throughout the rest of the body.
The Smart Pulse Pulse Analyzer uses non invasive, pulse technology to look at arterial elasticity which is an important preventative measure in overall cardiovascular health. This system collects and presents data on arterial walls in less than three minutes.
The Smart Pulse analyzer also measures Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and analyzes imperceptible changes in the heart rate waveforms. Low HRV has been linked to higher mortality rates in both healthy and unhealthy patients, thus it can be a strong predicator of multiple causes of mortality.
Smart Pulse is a portable self-measurement medical device. The measurement can be easily done at the office. The device is used to detect adult diseases in the early stages by checking the functioning of the autonomic nervous system, the status of their stress and their blood circulation by analyzing small changes in the heartbeats.
Our Smart Pulse analyzer can help reduce cardiovascular disease in our office's patient population through early detection and prevention. It can also monitor the effectiveness of treatment modalities - whether they are lifestyle changes such as exercise, supplementation or pharmaceutical medications. If a particular treatment is effective, our patients should see an improvement by their next Smart Pulse test (testing is usually recommended every three to six months).
Cardiovascular Disease continues to be the number one killer for both men and women throughout North America. Dr. Rasmussen believes that the use of the Smart Pulse Analyzer will help reduce cardiovascular disease through early detection and prevention.
Smart Pulse Cardiovascular Testing is offered In-House now and is available at any time.
