P.A.D. Circulation Testing

What is PAD?

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs when there is a build up of cholesterol and plaque in the arteries of the lower extremities, causing decreased blood flow to the legs and feet.

In-Office Arterial Blood Flow Assessment

We offer this service right in our office. No special scheduling or setup necessary. As simple as a routine office visit.

Here’s how it works:

  1. The FloChec sensor is placed on each extremity for 15 seconds, while the supplied computer uses proprietary software to measure blood volume ratios between upper and lower extremities.
  2. When differences in blood volume between upper and lower extremities are detected, FloChec may provide an early warning to both physician and patient about abonormal blood flow.
  3. No Doppler or pressure cuffs needed.
  4. FloChec is a fast, simple and straightforward office procedure that can be done under the general supervision of the trained office physician without the need of specialized personnel.
  5. Results are available instantly with a one-page print-out of calculated ABI results and pulse volume waveform recordings for the patient’s permanent chart (printer supplied).
