Course Overview

Help fight a prolific disease that affects approximately 202 million people worldwide. Lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) is commonly caused by the buildup of plaque in arteries. If someone has a buildup of plaque in the arteries in their legs, then they are likely to have it in the hearts and brains, resulting in an increased chance of having a stroke or heart attack.

With the technical skills you will gain in this course, you’ll be able to perform Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) testing. Using a Doppler unit, you will perform ABIs to screen for PAD and determine patient suitability for compression therapy.

Entrance requirements: Students should be healthcare professionals, medical researchers, or employees of healthcare insurance companies.
