WHY: Find out why PAT Technology is the "buzz" at AHA

It's been nearly a decade since the Nobel Prize was awarded for

discovering the link between endothelial dysfunction and

cardiovascular disease. The key is recognizing subtle changes in

blood flow, called peripheral arterial tone (PAT). Research

released at this AHA conference validates this basic science.

-- Framingham Heart Study uses PAT Technology to find links

between endothelial dysfunction and cardiovascular risk factors

-- Swedish scientists note that anger, depression and anxiety in

children are connected to measurable endothelial changes that

precedes heart disease

-- An international team of scientists discovers that endothelial

damage is widespread in malaria, suggesting new avenues for

treatment

-- Endothelial damage is common in insulin resistant patients;

treating insulin resistance could change the outcome for many

-- Certain pacemakers implanted to boost the right side of the

heart are linked to endothelial damage and decreased heart

function.
