Cardiovascular Disease and
the Multifunction Cardiogram

Cardiovascular disease & the multifunction cardiogram

What is Cardiovascular Disease?

Cardiovascular diseases affect the heart and blood vessels in your body. Almost half of all adults in the U.S. have at least one form of heart disease.   You can develop heart disease in early childhood, and it can build for decades without you having any knowledge of what is happening inside your body.  These diseases can affect one or many parts of your heart and blood vessels. A person may physically experience the illness, or you may not feel anything at all. The sooner you detect cardiovascular disease, the easier it is to treat.

Some of the Most Common Heart and Blood Vessel Problems:

  • Abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Heart valve disease.
  • Narrowing the blood vessels in your heart, other organs, or throughout your body with plaque.
  • Heart squeezing and relaxation difficulties.
  • Heart and blood vessel problems that could have been present since birth.
  • Problems with your heart’s outer lining.

How is Cardiovascular Disease Diagnosed?

Your healthcare provider will perform a physical exam and ask questions about your symptoms, personal health, and family health history. They may also order tests to help diagnose cardiovascular disease, as appropriate.

Some common tests to diagnose cardiovascular disease include:

All the above tests are excellent in detecting heart disease, but these tests do not allow for the earlier detection of blockages in the arteries.  The blockages over time are what causes damage to the heart and blood vessels.  Over time the most common symptoms of coronary artery disease are cardiac arrest, heart attack, or sudden death.

Early detection is critical, and now doctors can perform a new test before any symptoms, or irreversible damage can occur.  Emsite Health can provide a patient with an MCG.

What is an MCG?

MCG is short for a Multifunction Cardiogram. MCG utilizes A.I. and Machine Learning to assign the patient a severity score which aids the doctor in detecting the disease early.  MCG provides accurate data similar to an angiogram without the risks.  This test monitors electrical activity and blood flow to detect blockage that a stress test or angiogram would typically miss.  In just 10 minutes, your doctor will receive relevant and unbiased data about your entire myocardial system.

The MCG is a noninvasive and unprecedently accurate device that can detect blockages in the arteries before you have any symptoms. Early detection allows for early intervention, and that will save lives.

Are You at Risk for Heart Disease?

Early detection using the MCG will allow you to make simple lifestyle changes to prevent and possibly reverse any heart diseases. Emsite Health can administer the Multifunction Cardiogram in-house.  This test can offer you the peace of mind that you are doing what you need to do to live a long, healthy life.
