Ger touched on the Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity Testing aka Arteriograph Test briefly in his March Monthly Update so we are now delighted to let you know that we have set a date for Declan Murphy of Heart Health Matters to carry out the Arteriograph Test in Only Natural on Friday 5th April.
This test is a non-invasive method for a comprehensive diagnosis of the cardiovascular system and is used to assess the level of aorta (main blood vessel) stiffness. Increased stiffness of your aorta increases the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. By analysing the stiffness of your aorta it is possible to assess your risk of heart disease long before symptoms physically appear.
The test will take about half an hour to complete and costs €50, results will be printed and explained and a copy given to take away. Booking is essential and there are guidelines to follow before the test so to make an appointment or for more information contact the shop 053 912 3236.
