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
-- 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
