PAD Screening

10 Million Americans are affected by Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Know if you are one of them.
Register for this free screening today. Peripheral Arterial Disease occurs when the arteries that carry blood to the arms or legs become narrowed or clogged, slowing or stopping the flow of blood. People with PAD can have leg pain or numbness but more than 50% of people don't have any symptoms at all. Most commonly people with PAD are age 50 or older.
Common risk factors include: Smoking, hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, family history of heart and vascular disease, obesity, lack of exercise or physical activity and atherosclerosis.
Our Screening use Ankle-brachial index (ABI). It compares the blood pressure in your ankle with the blood pressure in your arm. To get a blood pressure reading, a healthcare professional uses a regular blood pressure cuff and a special ultrasound device to evaluate blood pressure and flow. The test lasts 10-15 minutes.
