The Problem Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of global death and disability and was responsible for the loss of 17 million lives in 2008. Early identification of CVD risk factors and disease is vital in securing future advances against the disease. Cardiovascular Disease Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a manifestation of systemic atherosclerosis that is: • Common - affecting 20% of people aged over 60 years (NICE, 2018) • Silent - up to two thirds of PAD patients in the community have no symptoms (ESC, 2017) • Lethal - associated with a 3 to 6 fold increased risk...

Dopplex Ability – How Does it Work ? Our patented two chamber cuffs use duo sense™ pneumatic technology to measure systolic pressures and is based on volume plethysmography and not oscillometric techniques. One chamber is used to occlude the vessel, while the second distal chamber is used to sense the returning signals allowing four limbs to be measured simultaneously. Ability Technology vs Oscillometric The Ability is based on volume plethysmography technology which is superior to other automatic systems using the oscillometric method, especially in detecting low ankle pressures. When low...

The Value of PVR Waveforms Dopplex Ability also records the ankle pulse volume waveforms which provide pictorial evidence to aid a clinician’s diagnosis; this is of particular value in patients who are prone to arterial calcification, such as diabetics. A well recognised limitation of the ABI concerns the fact that it becomes inaccurate or non-diagnostic in the presence of arterial calcification. PVR analysis provides a second line of investigation that can highlight when this has occurred whilst also providing qualitative information with regard to the arterial status of the limb. The...
