For PatientsFor Healthcare Professionals



State-of-the-art PC based “CARDIAC RISK Profiler” provides an unparalleled screening &prognostic approach for clinicians in HTN/CVD/DM patients with a comprehensive report.

 

A single multi colour print report summarizes all the above mentioned tests along with interpretation . A colour coded bar graph in patient report indicates the overall health score of the patient .

A total of 50 plus Parameters are analysed and interpreted in the report for the clinicians perusal at a glance . Exhaustive clinical information with graphs of all tests parameters is also displayed and printed in the full disclosure report of 12 pages .

 

Heart Rate Variability assessment :

Hypertension is characterized by an increase in the LF component of HRV. Reduced parasympathetic activity is observed  in hypertensive patients. Support the use of non-pathological therapy of hypertension that improves the vagal tone (eg, exercise) can be deduced by HRV analysis. It can also rule out risk in exercise.

 

Myocardial Infarction: Depressed HRV after MI may reflect a decrease in vagal activity directed to the heart, which leads to prevalence of sympathetic mechanisms and to cardiac electrical instability.

Depressed HRV is a powerful predictor of mortality and of arrhythmic complications (for example, symptomatic sustained ventricular tachycardia) in patients after acute MI. The rationale for trying to modify HRV after MI stems from the multiple observations indicating that cardiac mortality is higher among those post-MI patients who have a more depressed HRV. The inference is that interventions that augment HRV may be protective against cardiac mortality and sudden cardiac death. Assessment of HRV at both the early stage of MI (2 to 3 days after acute MI) and before discharge from the hospital (1 to 3 weeks after acute MI) offers important prognostic information. HRV measured late (1 year) after acute MI also predicts further mortality.

 

Myocardial Dysfunction :  A reduced HRV has been observed consistently in patients with cardiac failure. In this condition characterized by signs of sympathetic activation such as faster heart rates and high levels of circulating catecholamines, a relation between changes in HRV and the extent of left ventricular dysfunction was reported.

 

Diabetic Neuropathy :  In neuropathy associated with diabetes mellitus characterized by alteration of small nerve fibers, a reduction in time domain parameters of HRV seems not only to carry negative prognostic value but also to precede the clinical expression of autonomic neuropathy. saving you a lot of time.   Additionally saving the patient multiple tests cost and inconvenience.

 

HRV  Quantification with C-RAP device :

Short term HRV Parameters :

Three main spectral components are distinguished in a spectrum calculated from short-term recordings of 2 to 5 minutes. VLF, LF, and HF components. The distribution of the power and the central frequency of LF and HF are not fixed but may vary in relation to changes in autonomic modulations of heart period.

SDNN is Standard deviation of all NN intervals, SDANN is Standard deviation of the averages of NN intervals in all 5-minute segments of the entire recording and RMSSD is the square root of the mean of the sum of the squares of differences between adjacent NN intervals.

 

Dr. Ewing’s Test  Parameters :

 

ECG during deep breathing (E:I Ratio): R-R intervals during inhalation and exhalation are calculated. The longest R-R interval is determined during expiration (R-R max) and the shortest interval during inspiration (R-R min). The ratio of the longest to shortest R-R interval is called the E:I ratio. Normal Values are > 1.21.

 

ECG to standing (30:15 Ratio): The shortest R-R interval is measured after standing, which is around the 15th beat. This is followed by bradycardia, which is indicated by the longest R-R interval around the 30th beat. The ratio of the longest to shortest R-R interval is calculated, which is called 30:15 ratio. Normal Values are > 1.03.

 

Valsalva Maneuver and ratio: When a person forcefully expires against a closed glottis, changes occur in intrathoracic pressure that dramatically affect venous return, cardiac output, arterial pressure and heart rate. The ratio between longest to shortest  R-R  intervals during and after the maneuver is called as Valsalva ratio.

 

Cardiac Parameters :

Central Blood Pressure :  Central Aortic Systolic Pressure or CASP has been shown to be an important factor in the relation to strokes and cardiovascular events, more so than the brachial pressure, or the pressure at the arm commonly. Central Diastolic  pressure is a major factor in perfusion of the myocardium.

Aortic Augmentation Pressure predicts adverse outcomes in patients with CAD independently of PP and other risk markers.  Augmentation Index is a very important marker to describe the arterial function.It is mainly reflected to the arterial resistance of the upper body thus it can carry information about the ongoing arterial function and dysfunction.

 

Carotid Femoral Pulse Wave Velocity (cfPWV) :  Stiffening of the aorta and large elastic arteries is a biophysical manifestation of vascular aging with important prognostic implications. It is elevated in conditions such as renal failure, diabetes, and hypertension, and in each of these conditions, it is predictive of subsequent cardiovascular events. cfPWV is the GOLD STANDARD measurement of stiffness of the Aorta.

 

Endothelial function and large artery stiffness are independent determinants of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality.
