Description

Peripheral artery disease, also referred to as PAD, results when the peripheral arteries become narrow or blocked  and limit the blood flow to the legs. This restricted blood flow is caused by a buildup of plaque in the artery walls. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 8 million people in the United States have PAD, including 12-20 percent of individuals older than age 60.

If left untreated, peripheral artery disease can cause pain or aching in the legs, difficulty walking and can also be associated with other serious conditions leading to heart attacks and stroke. This low-cost preventive screening is designed to help identify your risk of PAD so that you can take measures now to help lower your controllable risk factors.

The screening takes approximately 30 minutes and includes an ankle-brachial index test to predict the severity of plaque buildup; a blood pressure and vital signs check; a risk assessment questionnaire and
one-on-one counseling.

This screening is recommended for people who answer “yes” to one or more of these questions:

  • Do you have aching, cramping or pain in your legs when you walk or exercise, but then the pain goes away after you rest?
  • Do you have diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol?
  • Do you have a previous history of heart attack or stroke?
  • Do you smoke or have you ever smoked?
