Noninvasive Vascular Testing
Mountain View Wound and Hyperbaric Center provides non-invasive testing for locating areas of vascular blockage and disease which might be producing your symptoms. Upon referral, one of our specialists will evaluate the wound, as well as reviewing the complete medical history. Some patients require specialized tests, such as Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)**, which yield important information about blood and oxygen flow in the wound area.
Transcutaneous Oxygen Monitoring
(TCOM / tcp02) is a well-documented technique reflecting the nutritive flow in the capillaries. Today, TCOM is commonly used in clinical applications such as wound healing assessment, hyperbaric medicine, amputation-level determinations and more. To determine the potential for uncomplicated healing when you have:
- Patients with wounds that haven't healed or shown progress within 30 days
- Patients who have had recent revascularization procedures
- Patients with questionable vascular supply
- Patients who are considering surgical procedures
(ABI) is a well-established, objective test for diagnosis and management of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and critical limb ischemia (CLI). This test also gives valuable clinical information for the evaluation and planning of revascularization procedures.
