Peripheral Artery Screening

A serious circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood fl ow to limbs, usually the legs. This causes symptoms such as leg pain when walking.



PAD is also a potential sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries called atherosclerosis. This condition may reduce blood flow to the heart and brain, as well as legs. PAD affects more than 18 million people, most over the age of 50. While serious, this disease is treatable.

The screening test is done on bare hands and feet, looking for pulses in each extremity.  It will take approximately 30 minutes and you will leave with the test results and recommendation for follow-up, if needed, in your hands.  

*Note: this test method does not apply to people with atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat.
