Why EndoPAT™? | Itamar Medical

I was watching the latest bulletproof episode and Dr Joel Kahn discussion was very interesting especially the Endopat new method for identifying calcification by checking the function of the endothelium.

Why EndoPAT™

Have you experienced chest pain? Any shortness of breath? What if your doctor could assess your risk for heart disease and stroke beyond standard blood work, and with non-invasive, simple and affordable 15 minute test? What if the answer to diagnosing heart disease could actually be right at the tip of your finger?
That’s now possible with Itamar Medical’s EndoPAT ™ device, an innovative diagnostic tool that gives doctors and patients a window to the current functioning of theendothelium and the overall health of your arteries. The endothelium is the thin layer of flat, smooth cells that line the inner walls of the 62,000 miles of blood vessels throughout the body.

EndoPAT™ has several advantages:
  • It is the only medical device indicated for use in endothelial function assessment.
  • Contrary to other expensive tests such as CT (computerized tomography), the test reflects quite well the progress made with lifestyle changes and adherence to medical therapy within weeks and therefore gives a powerful tool to follow-up on treatment.
  • The EndoPAT™ It is a non-invasive test. A standard blood pressure cuff and finger probes are easily placed on and removed.
  • Testing is quick and easy. The doctor can complete an EndoPAT™ test in the office within 15 minutes.
  • The device provides reliable and reproducible results. EndoPAT™ tests have provided important clinical information in more than 100 peer-reviewedpublications.
  • Accurately assesses the health of the heart. Growing scientific literature includes more than 400 EndoPAT™ publications in peer-reviewed abstracts and journals presented in major conferences.
  • The EndoPAT™ is an FDA approved (2003) and CE marked medical device.
  • Over 1000 EndoPAT™ devices are now in use in over 40 countries.
