Proper Use of the Vital Vision MS-1200 Arterial Hardness and Blood Pressure Monitor
The use of the Vital Vision MS-1200 Arterial Hardness and Blood Pressure Monitors requires an understanding of the features of the Arterial Stiffness Index (ASI) and the Arterial Hardness Value (H-Value) which involve a professional expression or symptom related with Medicine and Pathology.
After many years of studying the use of the Vital Vision MS -1200 it was determined that a feature regarding Arterial Elasticity Indication (AEI) regarding the Brachial Artery would provide better understanding for the users.
AEI has 8 increments as readings which are shown after each single measurement. These 8 readings can be simply divided into two groups. The 1st to 6th increments are grouped as the first part and the 7th & 8th as the second part. The fewer increments shown indicate better arterial vessel elasticity.
There are many factors which affect the arterial vessel elasticity and the results for each measurement taken, to include the factors of weather, temperature, surrounding, emotion, stress, etc. If the user continuously observes the readings of the AEI and observes the trend of 30 measurements as indicated on the Vital Vision MS-1200, there is an indication of a trend of the userís health condition.
It is recommended that users establish their baseline average AEI reading as a reference standard, after completing 30 measurements by taking 1~3 measurements a days. An AEI reading average of 5 increments may reduce to 4 increments due to life style changes. As an example, changing to a healthier diet, reduction in fat and salt intake, weight loss, eliminating tobacco products and limiting alcohol intake: improved sleep and proper exercise; less working stress, all may cause an improved AEI reading. Help from certain nutritional supplements, prescriptions, medications or therapy, can also provide for a healthier arterial vessel condition.
If the average AEI reading moves forward to higher increments after a period of time, it is certainly advisable to go for further physical check ups and look for professional help from physicians and consultants to understand the arterial condition.
This device does not offer information as to how or why it indicating poor arterial elasticity. Only further tests like blood analysis and other physical examinations by physicians can help.
If the AEI readings always show the 7th or 8th increments, this device may not be suitable as the arterial elasticity diminishes under various reasons, including the aging process or other problems.
The Vital Vision MS-1200 is not build and designed for patients suffering symptoms of vascular diseases.
Questions and Answers
|Vital Vision MS-1200 is a monitoring device only. It does provide useful information for tracking the hardness of the brachial artery; however, it will not replace the doctorís final diagnosis.|
|No, this device will not provide diagnosis of any diseases. Through the daily observation of The Arterial Hardness Value ( H-Value) measurement, the user will have a better understanding of his or her tendency of arterial hardness. This device will serve as an early screening device to warn the user to take corrective action through changes in life-style or further physical check-ups.|
|Hardening of arteries is a description of a gradual occurrence of a physical phenomenon. Arteriosclerosis means that the hardening of the arteries has reach a point that can be diagnosed as a disease.|
|Arteriosclerosis is a silent killer. The hardening of arteries progresses without prominent symptoms of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, without early prognosis a person may suffer greatly when the arteries reach to a dangerous degree of stiffening. Many factors go into forming the hardening of arteries. According to researchers, changing to a healthier diet, reduction in fat and salt intake, weight loss, eliminating tobacco products, limiting alcohol intake, improved sleep, proper exercise and less working stress, all may lead to an improved AEI reading. One should begin monitoring their H-Value (arterial hardness indicator) as early as possible to avoid these life-style related diseases.|
|The test population in Vital Visionís clinical test covers 30-year-old and above.|
|According to the clinical test, there is no direct correlation between H-Value and blood pressure. In other words, one may have high blood pressure with normal arterial hardness.|
|Both H-Value and blood pressure fluctuate through out the day. It is normal the see fluctuation in H-Value and blood pressure.|
|Normally, fluctuation of the measurement in H-Value should be within 3 bars. The fluctuation in blood pressure could go as high as 30 mm Hg in some people.|
|Unlike body temperature, which is maintained in a smaller range of fluctuation, the fluctuation in H-Value and blood pressure is a bodyís reaction to changes in external environment and emotions. Some people are more emotional than others, in which fluctuation of measurements is more prominent.|
|No, the only way to validate a deviceís accuracy is through clinical test according to international standard protocol. No one brand can be used as a standard for others.|
|In order to obtain accurate measurement result, it is very important to follow the instructions in the manual. Keep it in a save place for reference at a later time.|
|Before measurements are taken, please be seated, relax for a few minutes. Be still when taking measurements and refrain from talking and looking around. If you should take another measurement, please rest for another 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the artery a chance to recover from the great cuff pressure of the previous measurement.|
