Dr. Cynthia’s Comprehensive Cardiovascular Evaluation
While most cardiovascular evaluation focuses only on the heart, the key component of the cardiovascular system is the circulation. In fact, the heart is in essence an outpouching of the vascular tree, albeit, with more sophisticated structures, chambers, valves and function. The circulatory system is comprised of the macrovascular (large arteries – aorta, carotid, brachial, femoral, and even coronaries to name a few) and microvascular system (all the tiny capillaries supplying the vital organs). If we were to line all the vessels within a human body into a linear line, the circulatory system would span sixty to one hundred thousand miles or three times around the globe. If we were to flail open the vessels and place them side by side, the total surface area of the vascular circulatory system would span six and a half tennis courts. The cardiovascular and endothelial system is in fact the largest organ within our bodies.
The cardiovascular system is comprised of the endothelium (lining of the blood vessel) and the neuromuscular component (the muscular arterial wall and the systemic nervous system controlling its function). A comprehensive cardiovascular examination must evaluate not only the heart (EKG, echocardiogram, stress test, nuclear scan), but the central vs peripheral pressures, cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance (ICG test), the endothelium (endoPAT test), the arterial waveform (MAX PULSE test) and autonomic regulation of the heart (Heart Rate Variability). In addition, we have a heart sound recorder (HSR) that is uses a very sophisticated microphone that records not just heart sounds but uses an accelerometer like that used in seismograph to detect earthquake vibrations. So while the EKG detects the electrical activity of the heart, the HSR detects the movement and function of the cardiac valves, and the tone or mechanical impulse of the heart contractility. Surprisingly, we have found that while the surface EKG might look normal, the underlying heart rhythm, rate and tone can look very abnormal and would not have been detected with an EKG, stethoscope, or even an echocardiogram.
