Why test for arterial elasticity?

Aging and disease associated with an increase in cardiovascular events alter the physical characteristics of blood vessel walls and impair the pulsatile function of the arteries. An accumulating body of evidence indicates that impaired pulsitile function of arteries provides important prognostic and therapeutic information beyond that provided by traditional blood pressure measurements.

The ability to detect and monitor sub-clinical damage, representing the cumulative and integrated influence of risk factors in impairing arterial wall integrity, holds potential to further refine cardiovascular risk stratification and enable early intervention to prevent or attenuate disease progression.

Accumulating evidence suggests that abnormalities in the pulsatile characteristics of arteries occur early in the disease processes associated with increased cardiovascular risk, and can be favorably modified by therapeutic interventions.

We now know that the health of the endothelium and the blood vessels directly affects overall cardiovascular health. Cardiovascular disease kills 500,000 Americans every year in the form of heart attack and stroke. About 16 million more Americans suffer pain and disabilities caused by cardiovascular disease. Today, over 60,800,000 Americans (a quarter of the U.S. population) have one or more conditions that put them at risk for heart attack and stroke.

Powerful New Tool for Health Care Professionals

As a health care professional using the Cardio WA, you have a powerful new tool and advanced technology providing you with cardiovascular parameters specific to the health of arteries. In minutes, an easy-to-understand report and the precise data you require is available for identifying cardiovascular disease risk in your patients.

This non-invasive system is capable of measuring arterial compliance. The Cardio WA  sensitivity to early arterial changes builds highly detailed data for assessment in determining whether patients have potential underlying vascular disease, as well as developing an outline for the physician of the potential effects of patient-specific risk factors.

Cardio WA was developed specifically for use in mobile events, clinics and tradeshow events and can easily and successfully become an important tool in your current patient recruitment& retention process.

Advanced Technology Arrives In Your Practice

The Cardio Wa devices measure a pulse waveform produced by the beating heart. Data captured by the devices during a patient test is analyzed and reported in just minutes to provide a clear, concise evaluation tool for health care professionals.

Arterial stiffness indices are particularly important in identifying individuals who exhibit the development of vascular disease and enables the healthcare professional to begin appropriate treatment long before the symptoms or clinical signs appear. The DPA has many applications including:

  • Hypertension
  • Borderline Hypertension
  • Hyperlipidemial
  • Endothelial Function

Arterial Testing

What is an arterial pulse wave?

The pulse wave is a physiological phenomenon, observable and measurable in the arterial system during blood circulation. During one heart systole a certain blood volume is expelled. This propagates through the arteries due to the reciprocal transformation between kinetic energy of a segment of the expelled blood volume and the potential energy of a stretched segment of the resilient vascular wall. We can observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave. It can be used for classification of the artery elasticity. 

Waveforms Produced By the Cardio WA 

Plethysmogram (PTG) Waveform – The shape of the pulse wave is determined, in part, by the elasticity of the blood vessels. The Cardio WA  can analyze the shape of the curve to get early information about a developing arterial vascular disease. The pulse wave analysis can often detect changes very early, and is non-invasive, very easy to use, and one of the most economical techniques available today. The Cardio WA  use a fingertip probe sensor – light from the LED/Photodiode is transmitted through the tissue at the sensor site. The Photodiode detects the changes in the amount of light absorbed by the hemoglobin which forms the PTG.

Accelerated Plethysmogram (APG) Waveform – The second derivative of PTG – an excellent method to evaluate the biological age of arteries.

Cardio WA and Heart Rate Variability

Heart Rate Variability, when decreased implies less ability to respond to changes in the environment.  Too much consistency in heart rate (less variability) is often associated with dysfunction and disease.  The Cardio WA analyzes imperceptible changes in the heart rate waveforms, provides indices and evaluates the current body condition of the autonomic nervous system.

Low HRV has been shown in numerous studies to be related to a higher mortality rate in both healthy and unhealthy subjects.  It thus can be shown to be a strong predicator of all-cause mortality.  The heart is 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.

Cardiovascular-related issues are not the only uses for the Cardio WA.  Psychologists are increasingly recognizing the importance of HRV.  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 HRV Tachogram: Presents the fluctuation of the heart rate during the 3 minute test. A more erratic reading indicates more Heart Rate Variability and a healthier heart versus a reading that is more level. (Stressed people have less variability in their heartbeat).


Heart Beat: How many beats per minute for one’s heart.  The mean or average beats per minute is normally in the 60-90 range for adults. Artifact Beat represents the number of irregular or unrecognizable heartbeats. If more than 5, the test should be retake. If the irregular beats remain, patient might have an arrhythmia.


TP, VLF,  LF, HF Bar Graphs:  Total Power / Very Low Frequency/Low Frequency/High Frequency. Shows the analysis of your heartbeats, dividing them into categories for evaluation.


Aging Vascular Health: Describes the patients wave form and shows the percentage of heartbeats that fell into each waveform. Type 1 is excellent arterial health and the levels progress downwards as the arteries harden and the heart weakens until reaching the lowest level of health at Type 7.


Power Spectral Density:  Shows levels of Sympathetic and Parasympathetic activity and their balance. Power in the 4 frequency bands analyzed.


Stress Measurements: Shows how much physical or mental stress the patient is experiencing. Stress Resistance shows How well the body is dealing with the stress that it is under. More physically healthy and robust individuals can handle higher levels of stress imbalance. Poor stress resistance shows the patient is not healthy enough to withstand their stress levels and should take action to reduce stress and improve overall health and fitness.


Score of Your Stress: Gives patient Overall Stress Score that takes into account stress levels and stress resistance. Low stress and high stress resistance gives the best score (lowest number). Allows the the practitioner to determine if actions is needed to bring stress levels down


WaveType: Shows the dominant wave type and is the person’s score for arterial elasticity. 1 is the best score and 7 is the most serious. This is calculated as the Wave Type with the most number of heartbeats. For fuller understanding look at the percentages in the Aging Vascular Health Above.
