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.
