Pulsewave Analysis

The Cardio Wave Analyzer performs a sophisticated analysis of the arterial pulsewave.

The Cardio WA provides information on arterial wall stiffness and determines the biological age of arteries in less than 3 minutes. 

This FDA cleared, user-friendly, non-invasive device uses a finger probe to observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave.

Aging and disease states associated with an increase in cardiovascular events alter the physical characteristics of blood vessel walls and impair the pulsatile function of arteries. Impaired pulsatile function of arteries provides important prognostic and therapeutic information beyond that provided by traditional blood pressure measurements.

Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer for both men & women in the United States. Use of the Cardio WA can help caregivers reduce cardiovascular disease in their patient populations through early detection and prevention.  

 

In summary the Cardio Wave Analyzer provides:

  • Early detection of arterial wall stiffness
  • Biological age of arteries
  • Information regarding efficacy of treatment choices
  • A tool to monitor the arterial wall response to lifestyle changes / reduction of  cardiovascular risk factors

Pulse Wave Velocity

When the heart beats, blood is pushed through aorta and the main arteries down the arm to the finger tips. The thump of the heart creates a pulse wave in the blood that travels down the arm. Very hard arteries allow that pulse wave to move very quickly. With soft, flexible arteries, the pressure wave moves more slowly.

Because of the way that blood moves faster through hardened arteries, Pulse–wave velocity (PWV) is a way to measure arterial stiffness and detect hardening of the arteries well before other symptoms appear. This makes Pulse Wave Velocity Measurement an incredibly important tool in early diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.

A breakthrough came in the form of mathematically interpreting the shape of the arterial pulse wave at the finger tip. This allowed the creation of a wavetype that has 7 very distinct, very easy to see waveforms. Extensive research confirmed that each wave type from 1-7 conformed with a specific leave of arterial health.

This Technological Breakthrough Is Built Into the Cardio Wave Analyzer.

The Cardio Wave Analyzer was extensively researched to correlate the 7 different wave patterns with various degrees of arterial health. The result is that this machine can quickly detect arterial hardening with a 3 minute non-invasive test.

Heart Rate Variability

Heart Rate Variability, or HRV, is a measurement of the interaction between the sympathetic (“fight or flight”) nervous system and the parasympathetic (“relaxation”) nervous system in the overall autonomic nervous system. 

HRV reflects the heart’s ability to adapt to changing circumstances by detecting and quickly responding to unpredictable stimuli. It measures overall health and well-being and reflects on how the body adapts to perform at maximum efficiency.

Decreased HRV implies decreased ability to respond to changes in the environment.  Too much consistency in heart rate (less variability) is often associated with dysfunction and disease as well as a higher mortality rate in both healthy and unhealthy subjects.

Thus it can be shown to be a strong predicator of all-cause mortality.  The heart is not just a simple pump, but a complex sensory organ with its own functional “heart brain” that communicates with and influences the brain via the nervous system, hormonal system and other pathways.

Research has shown that these influences profoundly affect brain function and most of the body’s major organs.  Science now confirms that stress significantly increases the risk of heart disease, including sudden cardiac death.

Unmanaged emotional stress is equally if not more important than physical variables in determining health outcomes.  A conservative estimate is that 75% of visits to primary care physicians are due to stress-related disorders.

A number of studies have demonstrated that patients with anxiety, phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD) consistently show lower HRV, even when not exposed to a trauma related prompt.  Importantly, this relationship existed independent of age, gender, trait anxiety, cardio-respiratory fitness, heart rate, blood pressure and respiration rate.

The Report

Arterial Score: The Cardio Wave Analyzer will score the patient from 1 to 7  as to his or her arterial health including flexibility as well as an indication if the heart is weakening. This can allow practitioners to catch early stage heart disease and motivate patients to take action. The score of 1 is perfect arterial elasticity and the score of 7 represents no remaining arterial elasticity and an urgent need for treatment. This is a life saving screening tool that will quickly tell your patients if they have cardiovascular disease and how far it has progressed.

Autonomic Nervous System (ANS): HRV (Heart Rate Variability) helps test the autonomic nervous system activity, and the balance of the Sympathetic and the Parasympathetic Nervous Systems. If someone has chronic stress or high stress, the autonomic nervous system function, which is weakened by the decrease in heart rate, causes an  increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Testimonials

“I have been using the Cardio Wave Analyzer for several years and have been impressed with its ability to detect arterial stiffness and aging.
It is an excellent and cost effective test for evaluating cardiovascular health. I’ve had this machine for years and when I had an issue, the crew at Cardio Wave Analyzer were on it and fixed the device quickly and efficiently, and at no charge by the way. Kudos to the device and the company. I highly recommend them.” – Chad Edwards, DO

“As a Naturopath and Nutritional Consultant, I wanted an inexpensive professional tool that would help me to help and educate my patients about their cardiovascular health, as well as make them aware of their stress levels. The CardioWA is such a great machine! In a few minutes I get so much data with a great report. This helps me graphically show my patients where their current cardiovascular and stress levels are at. Also, THANK YOU for making the experience of buying the Cardio Wave Analyzer a most pleasant one.”   –CJ, ND, CNC Oklahoma

“This system is one of the best medical tools I have ever used and provides one of the most comprehensive cardiovascular screenings available. My work as a health practitioner over the past 20 years or so, with a particular focus on cardio issues, has been wonderfully enhanced through the use of this particular system. It has been invaluable in assisting those I work with to lead healthier lives and I am certain it has saved some too.” – D.N. Health Coach
