We are very happy to announce that our Accelerated Photophlethysmography (APG) and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Machine by MEDCORE is now available, and in full swing at the clinic.
The APG and HRV Test is a 5-minute non invasive, painless screening for overall cardiovascular health and STRESS (including stress status, stress resilience and autonomic nervous system balance). The Accelerated Photophlethysmography (APG) technology is used to assess arterial aging in relation to hemodynamics. And the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) technology gives us a snapshot of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which is responsible for the body to maintain homeostasis.
The technology was actually offered to us when a colleague from an Integrative Medicine Center in the South became privy to the fact that IV EDTA Chelation Therapy is our primary therapy. As a diagnostic tool as well as a monitoring instrument for progress and effects of treatments, the APG test will show gradual changes in hemoperfusion and arterial elasticity that can assist the doctors, as well as the patient in making adjustments in diet, lifestyle and therapies.
“Our EDTA Chelation Therapy primarily works on the circulatory system, especially the arteries. Majority of our patients at TLC are those with vascular related conditions, specifically coronary artery disease (CAD). This test, on top of the mainstream diagnostics like ECG, 2D echocardiography and Treadmill Stress Test, will aid our patients in appreciating their vascular health status, and the effects of their therapy.” – Dr. Molano, Lead Physician, TLC
The 5-minute test will give the patient a 2 page print out. Standard guidelines in interpretation of the test is based the European Task Force of Cardiology and the North American Pacing And Electrophysiology. It is the World’s 1st Asian Reference for Stress Scoring and is FDA approved in Korea, Japan, CE of Europe, USA, China and the Philippines. Doctors at TLC were trained by the distributor company in interpretation of the test. It takes around another 5 minutes for the interpretation and discussion and may be incorporated with the consultation and therapy of the patient.
