“Quantified hemodynamics of compression garments” involving APG® Air Plethysmograph presented at ACP 2012

At this year’s 26th Annual Congress of the American College of Phlebology, one presentation will explore the recent clinical evidence gathered by a conglomeration of San Diego-area vein clinics and medical device manufacturers. This clinical trial attempts to determine the hemodynamic differences between elastic versus inelastic compression garments using ACI Medical’s APG® Air Plethysmograph, a non-invasive venous diagnostic device.

26 Years of Venous Education

The ACP recognized the need for quality venous education twenty-six years ago and continues to fulfill on its mission of providing original education for an advancing specialty.
The ACP’s 26th Annual Congress will provide vein health practitioners with the latest techniques, innovative and engaging content, interaction with respected faculty from around the world and opportunities for all levels of skill and knowledge to gain the tools needed to improve patient care.
Join us November 15-18, 2012 at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, FL for this important program.

“How Air Plethysmography (APG®) Influences Patient Management”

APG Air PlethysmographBelow is an abstract of a pretty short publication introducing the APG® Air Plethysmograph.

Air plethysmography is a completely non-invasive diagnostic system used to quantify the severity of venous disease. The patient is only required to wear a sensor cuff around the leg. If desired, the diagnostic exam can also accommodate superficial occlusion tests and compression stockings.

Using the APG®’s user-friendly program, both patients and doctors can decide on the best course of action based on the APG®’s findings and predictions.

APG Air Plethysmograph GraphBefore this non-invasive technology was developed, technicians used to insert a large needle into the patient’s foot and have them do toe-ups – very unpleasant. But now, to everyone’s relief, there is an accurate alternative.






ABSTRACT: Air Plethysmography has contributed to a better understanding of lower limb circulatory problems. First established as a powerful research tool, APG Air PlethysmographAPG® is now used to make clinical decisions. For venous disease, APG® separately quantifies each of the hemodynamic factors responsible for the patient’s problems, i.e. obstruction (acute and chronic), reflux and calf muscle pump function. Treatment is directed toward correcting the appropriate cause(s) of disease. For arterial disease, APG® measures limb blood flow in ml/second. For access graft placement, APG® helps identify the most appropriate limb. Described below are specific areas in which APG® provides valuable information for patient management complementing older established diagnostic methods.
