Hello, my name is Dr. Giles. I’m a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Natural Internist, and today I wanted to tell you about something that literally could save your life. This is so, so important. It’s a way that we can actually determine what’s going on with your cardiovascular system and your autonomic nervous system. Cardiovascular, you understand that that’s heart and lungs and vessels. The autonomic system is what happens to you automatically from your subconscious, from emotions and from that system that runs everything from your heart rate to your thyroid function to your eyes dilating, all that is autonomic. So I want to show you this wonderful report that we get from what we call the Max Pulse. It’s a neat scanner that will scan your cardiovascular system and the autonomic system. So I’m going to go over this report with you and show you what other things that we can look for and how objective they are. It’s amazing. As you look at the report, this upper part right here, this is the average heart rate, the pulse. This is the high pulse and the low pulse, giving you the average. So that’s just at a resting heart rate, what does this patient look like. Next we look at this report here, which is what type you are. The type represents your thickening of the arteries, how much plaque you have within your arteries. So a Type-I, which is the, I don’t know if you can see that right here, that shadow line is what a Type-I pulse, or this is off of an EKG off of your finger. So it’s checking the contraction of your heart and so many other different things are shown here. But you can see where this is a shadow. That would be a Type-1. This patient comes in at a Type-4. So at Type-4, usually when were at a Type-1, we’re measuring from here to here. So as this angle drops flatter, and then ultimately heads down this way, down to a Type-7. A Type-7 would almost completely full of plaque. So this is a demonstration of plaque. So a Type-4 is not very good. We want to be up at a Type-1. So the Type-1 is here, a great way to determine if the patient has a lot of plaque within their system. Next, the DPI represents the overall strength of the heart itself, the heart muscle in general. We want to see that these numbers end up being in the optimal range of 70 or greater. That’s optimal. Normal would be 30-70, but that’s kind of normal for the United States, which the number one reason for death, in the United States, is cardiovascular disease, plaquing of the arteries and heart problems. So we want to see that this DPI and all of these four measurements would end up over here in the 70’s. Eccentric contraction is the contraction of the left ventricle. The left ventricle is the side of the heart that contracts and pumps blood throughout the whole system. So we want to see that that number, again, is 70 or above. Arterial elasticity is how much elasticness there is within the artery. How pliable is it? Is it full of calcium? Is it all plaqued off within, you know, within the actual tissue of the artery? So we want to be able to see that have elasticity. As our heart contracts we want to see it open and shut, if you will, stretch. That’s arterial elasticity. The next is residual blood volume, that’s how much blood is left in the heart after it’s contracted. We want to see that there is not as much blood. It’s configured so that this will also give us 70 or above. So the overall wave type is a Type-4. That’s the flat here. So we want to see that move toward a Type-1.
