Endothelial Dysfunction (Vascular Health-Being)
Fact: 50% of coronary deaths had NO previous symptoms
Fact: 50% men and 64% of women who died suddenly had no symptoms!
Fact: ~50% of heart attacks were NOT “high risk”!
Fact:Patients post heart attack 4-6 times higher risk for a sudden death
(According to the American Heart Association - AHA)
The EndoPAT provides a personalized window to your vascular health.
EndoPAT is the leading medical device for non-invasive endothelial function assessment.
Endothelial Dysfunction is recognized by the medical community as the critical junction between risk factors and clinical disease. It is the earliest detectable stage of cardiovascular disease.
The EndoPAT adds an important dimension to cardiovascular prevention by enabling physicians to reliably measure endothelial function and identify pathological cases of endothelial dysfunction at early stages.
EndoPAT Major Features and Advantages:
- FDA cleared and CE marked
- Reliable and reproducible results
It is used in preeminent clinical and research institutions, major epidemiological population-based studies (such as Framingham Heart Study), and pharmaceutical clinical phase studies in over 40 countries, with thousands of tests are performed worldwide every month.
Endothelial Dysfunction – treatable and reversible!
Numerous studies positioned Endothelial Dysfunction as the "ultimate risk of risk factors” and is the earliest clinical detectable stage of cardiovascular disease.
The presence of endothelial dysfunction highly predicts cardiovascular events in people in early stages of disease, beyond any conventional risk factors. Furthermore, it is treatable, and unlike the atherosclerotic plaque that it causes, it is even reversible.
If endothelium stressors are allowed to persist, the walls of the arteries begin to lose their elasticity and become hard and thick. This reduces the supply of nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood to the tissues, including the heart.
By taking an EndoPAT test, you and your doctor can determine whether you should be making more aggressive lifestyle changes or beginning medication therapy to reduce your risk of a heart attack or health related problems.
The EndoPAT test is considered the “gold standard” in assessment of coronary endothelial dysfunction and the presence of atherosclerosis in the heart.

EndoPAT goes beyond traditional risk factor assessment by measuring the risk of the risk factors—endothelial dysfunction.
EndoPAT testing reliably identifies individuals at risk of heart disease and other disorders with a simple 15-minute, non-invasive test that allows doctors to check the health of the endothelium.
The presence of endothelial dysfunction in the coronary circulation highly predicts cardiovascular events in people in early stages of disease, beyond any conventional risk factors.
EndoPAT features PAT (Peripheral Arterial Tone) technology, which measures the overall health of the endothelium. The PAT signal is measured from the fingertip by recording finger arterial pulsatile volume changes. Results of the 15-minute test are automatically calculated and an EndoScore is generated, which indicates the present state of endothelial health.
