This test can save hundreds of patients' legs each year and help prevent significant consequences associated with undiagnosed PAD.
ARVADA, Colo. (PRWEB) March 19, 2018
Newman Medical, a leading designer and manufacturer of diagnostic products and accessories for the medical industry, is pleased to announce that it has released an ABI with Exercise study to help physicians evaluate and diagnose Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). While PAD effects more than 20 percent of adults over the age of 65, it remains an under diagnosed and under treated disease since many patients with PAD are asymptomatic. If untreated, one in four patients with PAD will suffer a heart attack, stroke, amputation, or death within five years.
Newman Medical’s portable simpleABI Systems perform a myriad of tests to quickly and accurately diagnose PAD. Newman Medical’s ABI with Exercise Study can help physicians detect PAD in patients with intermittent claudication or whose resting ABI is not sufficient to diagnose PAD. The diagnostic system includes all of the necessary testing equipment and produces detailed reports on-site that include information necessary for reimbursement. SimpleABI Systems include an option to be connected to PACS systems via DICOM reporting or configured to communicate via HL7 to EMR/EHR systems.
“Our new and unique ABI with Exercise Study is an unparalleled clinical diagnostic tool,” said Spencer Newman, Founder and President of Newman Medical. “From a single page report, a clinician can assess pre- and post-exercise PAD results. This simple test improves the diagnostic assessment of PAD by helping to identify moderate PAD in patients that might otherwise not show up in a resting ABI. This test can save hundreds of patients' legs each year and help prevent significant consequences associated with undiagnosed PAD. Our simpleABI Systems are designed for physicians in a variety of specialties, including cardiologists, interventional radiologists, podiatrists, internists, and primary care physicians. We understand that many physicians have overloaded patient schedules, which is precisely why we designed our testing to be quick, accurate, and cost effective.”
Newman Medical has more than 40 years experience in vascular diagnosis. The family business began in 1976 when Dennis and Patricia Newman started Imex Medical Systems with the introduction of the Pocket-Dop Doppler. For the next two decades, Imex served as the leading domestic Doppler manufacturer. That same commitment to product development, innovation, and customer service is what led Spencer Newman, son of Dennis and Patricia, to launch Newman Medical in 2005.
