Judging by national statistics,
A minimum of 1 in 3 of your patients is at risk for heart disease.

Additionally, according to the AHA,
47% of adults have at least one of three risk factors for CVD:
high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or smoking.(1)

How does Max Pulse work?

The Max Pulse uses a photoelectric finger clip, and non-invasively tests the patient's arterial health. Using plethysmography, the Max Pulse measures the pulse waveform, and analyzes it to determine the wavetype of the patient. Applying well studied algorithms the Max Pulse graphs the heart as it cycles through the systolic and diastolic motions.

Will this disrupt our current office flow?

The Maxpulse is small and portable to be conveniently placed on a cart, or could be stationed in a room. This test requires only 45 seconds and runs on a simple software, so it can easily be introduced and used in the clinical setting.

What will the test indicate?

It can give evidence of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, the primary discovery for the Max Pulse. This test can provide substantial physiological evidence of heart disease. It will measure each individual pulse, and determine whether it is a type 1 (Excellent) 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 (Very Bad).

Who should get a Max Pulse testing?

Any patient who suffers from diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, metabolic syndrome, peripheral arterial disease, other arterial diseases can and should do the Max Pulse.
