Max Pulse – cardiogram device that can detect early changes to heart health
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been the highest cause of death in the United States for more than the last century. It remains the leading cause of death today and affects 81 million American adults.
Through the use of a simple, non-invasive, painless finger probe, the Max Pulse measures pulse waveform and heart rate to determine the following cardiovascular and autonomic nervous system factors:
- Wave type
- Atherosclerotic progress
- Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
- Differential Pulse Wave Index (DPI)
- Eccentric Constriction (EC)
- Arterial Elasticity (AE)
- Remaining Blood Volume (RBV)
- Mean heart rate
- Stress score
- Stress levels
- Other indices
The Max Pulse practitioner at CHA will customize courses of therapy and protocols for those patients who are at risk based on their initial readings, and follow up with additional screenings by using the Max Pulse to track progress. It is a great tool for monitoring the “before and after” effects of changes in diet and lifestyle on these systems.
