LEDA system combines the TM-ABI and LD-OXY technologies. Ankles & Brachial Volume Plethysmography analysis provides markers of blood pressure monitoring and Peripheral Artery Disease(PAD). LEDA System calculates the Ankle-Brachial indices (ABI) and it detects also main markers of hypertension such as Brachial Ankle Pulse Wave Velocity (baPWV) and Central Aortic Systolic Pressure. (CASP).
*Technologies: TM-ABI & LD-OXY
- The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is the ratio of the systolic blood pressure (SBP) measured at the ankle to that measured at the brachial artery. Originally described by Winsor1 in 1950, this index was initially proposed for the noninvasive diagnosis of lower-extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD). Later, it was shown that the ABI is an indicator of atherosclerosis at other vascular sites and can serve as a prognostic marker for cardiovascular events and functional impairment, even in the absence of symptoms of PAD.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE USE
- In the case of clinical suspicion based on symptoms and clinical findings, the ABI should be used as the first-line noninvasive test for the diagnosis of PAD
- An ABI <0.90 should be considered the threshold for confirming the diagnosis of lower-extremity PAD
- When the ABI is >1.40 but there is clinical suspicion of PAD, a toe-brachial index or other noninvasive tests, which may include imaging, should be used
- Photoplethysmography (PTG) is a simple optical technique that can be used to detect blood volume changes in the microvascular bed of tissue. Although the origins of the components of the PTG signal are not fully understood, it is generally accepted that they can provide valuable information about the cardiovascular system.
- There has been a resurgence of interest in the technique in recent years, driven by the demand for simple and portable technology for the primary care and community based on clinical settings.
- Regarding, the advancement of computer-based pulse wave analysis techniques, the PTG technology has been used in a wide range of commercially available medical devices for measuring oxygen saturation, blood pressure and cardiac output, assessing autonomic function and also detecting
*Best Method to assess peripheral artery disease using:
- Synchronization of the measurements arm-ankles
- Blood pressure measurements from volume plethysmography
- Toe Brachial Index to complete the assessment in cases of non compressible results (ABI> 1.4)
- No Human Error
- Clear Report
- Accurate Results
- Simultaneous Measurements in 2-3 minutes
- ANS and Artery Overview
