Saving lives and optimally adapting treatments: this is what the pOpmètre® does. In less than 2 minutes, you will know a patient’s arterial age.
Arterial stiffness is an independent risk factor for stroke, the consequences of which are very damaging physically but also financially: in fact, the annual cost for strokes is 4 billion euros (about 33k € / patient).
How can neurologists use the pOpmètre® ?
Every year in France, about 150,000 people suffer a stroke, 40,000 people die from one, and most who survive are severely disabled. The pOpmètre® will help you predict arteriosclerosis and the associated cardiovascular morbidity and mortality risks.
Measuring arterial stiffness is therefore important both in the prevention of strokes and the therapeutic follow-up. The benefits of the pOpmètre® for neurologists:
Specifically, take the case of Sylvie, 62, who became the victim of a stroke although she had none of the traditional risk factors: no diabetes, no cholesterol, and no high blood pressure. On the other hand, she presented arterial stiffness. This stiffness was calculated by measuring the PWV (Pulse Rate) with the pOpmètre®. Sylvie’s PWV was at 20 m/s, whereas a normal measurement is 10 m/s.
Thanks to pOpmètre®, she has had her treatment modified. When she was seen again for a consultation, she had improved her arterial stiffness by more than 30% over the course of three years!
Use pOpmètre® to help motivate your patients to stick to their treatments.
