What is the PULS Cardiac TestTM?
What are Unstable Cardiac Lesions and how do they cause most Heart Attacks?
Why test for Unstable Cardiac Lesions?
Current diagnostic and clinical CHD tools that rely on established clinical factors often do not identify, or often underestimate, patients who are in danger of having a Heart Attack. In fact, over 50% of individuals presenting with a severe cardiac event have at most one clinical factor or normal cholesterol levels.
Since most Heart Attacks occur with no previous signs or symptoms, there is a great need to identify a high population of individuals who may have Heart Disease, but may not have any signs or symptoms, before they experience a cardiac event.
Why should I consider getting my PULS Cardiac Test?
- Detect the early stages disease
- Diagnose the disease stage and progression of unstable cardiac lesion formation
- Predict how likely the disease will cause an unstable cardiac lesion rupture or Heart Attack
Because, 80% of Heart Disease is preventable/reversible with early-detection and lifestyle modifications, you and your physician can work together on an appropriate prevention plan according to the latest clinical guidelines.
