Early arterial assessment of patients with high risk for Peripheral Arterial Disease is a crucial step in preventing adverse events and should be conducted preventively for all patients in the cardiovascular risk group. The first step, along with physical examination, is the measurement of lower extremity artery perfusion.
Toe-Brachial Index (TBI) is used for the diagnosis of PAD, when the ABI measurement is uninterpretable or insufficient, making it an indispensable measurement not only for diabetic patients, patients undergoing dialysis and patients with very advanced age, but also for patients with extensive wounds and lymphoedema. Despite it being a relatively recent method, it is recommended by numerous guidelines. Usually, TBI requires a highly trained operator and is performed further down the line of diagnostic procedures. With MESI wireless automated technology, all high-risk patients can have their TBI measured early on.
In the webinar, you will learn:
