Services and treatments at The Lister Hospital

EndoPAT

Clinical Department

EndoPAT

Description

EndoPAT testing is used to detect changes in the condition of the inner lining of your blood vessels. If these endothelial cells appear to be damaged, it can be an indication of the early signs of heart disease, which are potentially reversible when treated.

The EndoPAT is proving to be a useful test, especially in women who present with atypical symptoms, to detect early signs of heart disease. The procedure only takes about 15 minutes. The test measurements are a barometer for the health of your endothelial cells, which line the inside of your blood vessels. These cells may become damaged by a fatty diet, smoking, stress hypertension, diabetes or lack of exercise.

Your doctor will call you for a further appointment or, if in The Lister Hospital, the results will be discussed with you the same day.
