  • ACCURATE - Less chance for operator error, less affected by calcified arteries of many diabetics, not affected by cold toes/fingers


WHY PAD TESTING SHOULD BE DONE IN YOUR PRACTICE

  • PAD testing saves patient's lives, improves their health
  • Peripheral artery disease, PAD, is a serious disease - with deadly consequences
  • Mortality is higher than many common diseases you test for
  • Early diagnosis and treatment can avoid disability and improve quality of life


If you don't test, most PAD will be missed

  • History and physical exam are unreliable
  • Over half of PAD patients are asymptomatic or believe their pains are arthritis or have stopped walking far enough to bring on claudication. As few as 10% have claudication.
  • Asymptomatic patients have the same prognosis as those with symptoms


Your patients prefer that testing be done in your office

  • Validates your patient's trust in you to find their PAD before they have an MI, stroke or amputation
  • They appreciate having it done in your office rather than be sent elsewhere


Software

Powerful yet simple ABI-Q software saves you time and is what sets the ABI-Q system apart. The software is an integrated part of the system; no separate downloading of the data is needed.
 

  • Automatic index calculations, avoiding potential errors
  • Automatically stores each exam with time stamp
  • Your logo and contact information can be shown on the report
  • Your physicians, operators and interpreters can be on drop-down editable menus
  • Drop down ICD-10 codes
  • Suggested CPT codes and interpretation of results are shown
  • Multiple and selectable formats to store the reports: PDF, TIFF, CSV, BMP, JPG DICOM software is available as an option


Reports

The ABI-Q software provides a fast, effective global test for the presence of PAD

ABI-Q Exam - The ABI-Q exam utilizes the PVR waveform - a diagnostic tool that has been used in vascular diagnosis for decades.

PVR

Each ABI-Q comes with PVR hardware which quickly and easily produces vascular waveforms.

Cuffs

The ABI-Q system comes with a complete set of specialized vascular cuffs. They are a washable soft material over a non-latex bladder. The cuffs are long enough to completely encircle the limb. The set includes: 2 x 10cm

How does the ABI-Q work?

The ABI-Q is based on our PVR waveforms.  The PVR has been a staple of vascular testing for over 30 years.  Recent studies have shown that it can have 97% accuracy compared to ultrasound duplex scanning.  Recognizing that interpreting a waveform can be subjective, we digitize the waveform and calculate a numerical index similar to (but not identical to) the standard ABI:

>1.0 Normal

0.91-0.99 Borderline

<0.90 At risk for PAD

It has been tested on over 120 patients and has an accuracy of better than 94%.

Many patients, especially diabetics, have calcified incompressible arteries (hardening of the arteries).  When this occurs, it throws off the pressure readings and the ABI results may not be accurate.  This does not happen with the ABI-Q.
