Measure Your Risk of Heart Disease 2 Ways!
The DPA provides information on arterial wall stiffness and determines
the biological age of arteries in less than 3 minutes. This user-friendly, non-invasive device uses a finger probe to observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave.
In summary the DPA provides:
Early detection of arterial wall stiffness
Biological age of arteries
Non-Invasive · No Blood · No Pain
Takes a snapshot of your arterial elasticity
Left Ventricle Ejection Level
Peripheral Circulatory Disturbance
Early detection of:
Arteriosclerosis which is a condition that involves narrowing or hardening of the arteries.
Atherosclerosis which is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries.
Heart Rate Variability/ANS Testing
A conservative estimate is that 75% of visits to primary care physicians are due to stress-related disorders.
There are two parts, or branches, to your autonomic nervous system (ANS), the sympathetic branch and the parasympathetic branch. Generally, the sympathetic branch is more in control when you are stressed, nervous, or excited, while the parasympathetic branch is more in control when you are relaxing, sleeping, or recovering from an illness or injury. A balance between the two branches of your ANS is essential for good health. In fact, most illnesses and injuries cause or result from an imbalance between these two branches. An imbalance in your ANS can tell your doctor many things about how healthy you are as well as what can be done to keep you as healthy as possible.
Research has shown that these influences profoundly affect brain function and most of the body's major organs. Science now confirms that stress significantly increases the risk of heart disease, including sudden cardiac death. Unmanaged emotional stress is equally if not more important than physical variables in determining health outcomes. There are two methods for evaluating HRV, (Time Domain and Frequency Domain) and both of them are used here.The following markers will be evaluated and calculated for Heart Rate Variability measurement:
Time Domain Method:
SDNN: Standard Deviation, Normal to Normal heart beat. Good estimate of ANS status RM-SSD: Good estimate of parasympathetic regulation of heart (PNS)
Mean HRT: Average heart rate over 5 minutes
Mean NN: Average time between two regular heart beats (normal to normal)
Frequency Domain Analysis (Spectral Analysis):
Total Power (TP): Overall “vitality” in the nervous system across all frequencies
Very Low Frequency (VLF)
Low Frequency (LF): Reflects both sympathetic and parasympathetic activities
High Frequency (HF): Reflects parasympathetic (valal) tone and fluctuations caused by respiration known as respiratory sinus arrhythmia.
LF / HF Ratio: Indicates overall balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic system.
Sympathetic Nervous System Balance (SNS:PNS)
Autonomic Balance Diagram (ABD): Most important part of HRV evaluation. Indicating active status of autonomic nervous system.
