Vantage ABI
Simplifying the Diagnosis of P.A.D.


The Vantage ABI is an innovative system with a cuff-based technology for performing the ankle-brachial index (ABI) exam to assist in the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.). The Vantage ABI provides accurate determination of the ABI across the full range of P.A.D. Striving to provide new technologies to better serve the needs of health care providers and patients, Summit Doppler developed the Vantage ABI.

This innovative cuff-based system uses Digital Fourier Oscillometric or DFO waveform analysis, which Summit Doppler co-invented with researchers from the  Cleveland Clinic  where the technology was clinically validated. This new technology is a significant improvement in ankle and pressure determination and P.A.D. assessment over traditional forms of oscillometric ankle pressure estimation. The Vantage ABI is well suited for the ABI exam. The system compares the blood pressures at the ankles with the higher of the two arm pressures and estimates the systolic blood pressure for each limb. A significantly reduced ankle pressure results in a low (<0.9) ABI value, indicating P.A.D.

The Vantage ABI has everything needed to conduct fast and accurate ABI exams, including a graphic display with convenient touch-screen to navigate the system, an optional roll-stand with storage basket,
a USB memory stick for data transfer and storage, four blood pressure cuffs and specific models have a built-in printer for printing ankle waveforms on adhesive-backed label paper. The Vantage ABI is quick and easy to use. After the cuffs are wrapped and the patient rests, with one touch, the entire ABI exam takes just 3 minutes to complete!

P.A.D. is a common condition that affects 8 to 12 million people in the U.S. every year.1 It is characterized by the narrowing of the arteries in the legs due to atherosclerosis. Most common among diabetics
and older adults, P.A.D. is under-diagnosed and under-treated, resulting in many patients at high-risk for heart attack, stroke, leg amputation and even death. Annual testing of patients at risk is recommended by national health organizations. Early detection of P.A.D. is the key to preventing these severe cardiovascular events and the ABI exam is a common test for diagnosing P.A.D.
Undetected P.A.D. is associated with the following health issues:
• 2 to 3 fold increase in mortality
• 2 to 6 fold increase in heart attack, stroke, amputation and death
• Severe decline in quality of life
• Leg amputation (150,000 annually)2
P.A.D. is more common than heart disease, cancer and stroke. Most people who have the disease may not have symptoms. In fact, less than 30% of P.A.D. patients have symptoms.1 If untreated, P.A.D. can lead to critical limb ischemia (CLI) causing gangrene, resulting in possible leg amputations. The most common symptom is claudication - pain or cramping in the legs that occurs when walking or exercising and usually subsides when at rest. Too often, claudication is misinterpreted as normal aging or arthritis pain.
If a patient is experiencing claudication, it is important to address it quickly and determine if the pain is due to P.A.D.
