Clinical Use of Lower Extremity Non-Invasive Arterial Testing
Lower Extremity Peripheral Arterial (PAD) Disease is often a forerunner of cardiac and renal insufficiency. Learning how to properly assess patients for early signs of
Peripheral Arterial Disease is good practice for the primary care MD/DO and their clinical staff and is essential for those physicians (MD/DO/DPM) who provide wound care.
Over the last thirty years the equipment available to perform non-invasive arterial testing has become more user friendly with testing results easily incorporated into your EHR.
This one hour webinar will provide your practice with the essentials you need to begin performing these exams and their regulatory requirements.
