    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I Need Vein Care?
    Have you started to notice bulging, twisted, or discolored veins in your legs? Maybe your skin has a shiny red color or feels hot to the touch. Many people write off these signs and symptoms of varicose veins as “just getting older.” However, these painful vein problems can be quite serious. While varicose veins might be the most visible kind of peripheral venous health problem, they’re only one of many potentially life-threatening conditions.

    • Peripheral Arterial Disease
    • Varicose Veins
    • >Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)
    Diagnosing Vein Problems
    • Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) Test: During an ABI test, blood pressure cuffs are placed on the arms and ankle. If the ankle blood pressure reading is significantly lower than the arm blood pressure reading, then your ABI results may indicate the presence of PAD.
    • Vascular Ultrasound: A vascular ultrasound uses a small, handheld transducer that bounces sound waves off the veins. These sound waves are recorded and then used to create an image of the blood vessel, revealing blockages, narrowing, and other health issues. This test is completely harmless and painless.
    • Angiography: During the procedure, a special contrast dye is injected into an artery – usually the femoral artery in the groin. X-ray imaging is used to trace the dye as it moves through your body’s blood vessels. (In some cases, a magnetic resonance angiogram or computed tomography angiogram may be used instead.)
    What is a Leg Screening?
    Don’t Let Tired, Painful Legs 
Slow You Down

    If you suffer from leg pain, you may be at risk for PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease). A quick leg screening using an ankle-brachial index (ABI) to compare blood pressure readings in the ankles with those in the arms can help identify possible blood flow issues and diagnose this painful condition.

    Call 1-866-431-WELL (9355) to schedule yours today at one of four convenient locations along the Wasatch Front.

    This screening does not require a physician’s order. Cost is $30 and no insurance will be filed.

    What is a HeartView Scan?
    The HeartView Scan is a noninvasive way to detect health problems before symptoms occur. The scan takes approximately 10 minutes and is performed on a state-of-the-art 64-slice CT scanner. This test measures the amount of atherosclerotic “plaque” in the coronary arteries. Plaque is the substance that builds within the walls of the arteries and can cause a heart attack if the arteries become blocked. Early detection is the key to treating heart disease.

    Give yourself peace of mind and take an active role in your health – call about a HeartView Scan today — 800-862-9886.

    How Does The Scan Work?
    The ABI compares blood pressure in your ankle to blood pressure in your arm. This test shows how well blood is flowing in your limbs.

    A normal ABI result is 1.0 or greater (with a range of 0.90 to 1.30). The test takes about 10 to 15 minutes to measure both arms and both ankles. This test may be done yearly to see whether P.A.D. is getting worse.

    Diagnosis of PAD is important because it will show if you are at higher risk for coronary heart disease, heart attack, stroke, and transient ischemic attack

    Are you at risk?

    PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease) SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:

    • A burning or aching pain in the feet and toes while resting, especially at night while lying flat
    • Intermittent claudication, or painful cramping in the leg or hip that occurs when walking or exercising and typically disappears with rest
    • Numbness, tingling and weakness in the lower legs and feet
    • Sores or wounds on the toes, feet, or legs that heal slowly, poorly, or not at all
    • A pale or bluish color to the skin
    • Poor nail growth on the toes and decreased hair growth on the legs
    RISK FACTORS INCLUDE:
    • Smoking
    • Diabetes
    • Age 50 or older
    • Age 50 or younger with diabetes and atherosclerosis symptoms
    • High blood pressure (hypertension)
    • High cholesterol (hyperlipidemia)
    • Sedentary lifestyle
    • Personal or family history of heart or vascular disease.

    To schedule your ABI Leg Screen, call 1-866-431-9355.

    This screening does not require a physician’s order. Cost is $30 and no insurance will be filed.
