PADnet

At Sound Health Care Center, we now offer PADnet Testing.

What is P.A.D.?

Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) occurs when there is a build up of cholesterol and plaque in the arteries of the lower extremities, causing decreased blood flow to the legs and feet.

Do I need a PADnet Test?

At risk groups for P.A.D. include men and women ages 70 and older, and patients 50 years or older with a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking.

Signs and symptoms of P.A.D. include:

  • Pain in the legs at rest due to poor circulation
  • A poorly healing wound on lower extremity
  • Injury to lower limb or foot involving blood vessels
  • Discoloration of toes and feet

PADnet Questionnaire

How do I schedule a PADnet Test?

Answering a simple questionnaire will help us determine if you are at risk for P.A.D. and if a vascular exam will help us better assess your vascular health status.

 

Please call or office at (360) 876-2434 if you have any question regarding P.A.D. or PADnet Testing. Or ask a medical assistant at your next doctors visit, if a PADnet Test would be beneficial for your health.
