What is VENDYS and how is the test performed?

In simple terms, VENDYS® measures your body's ability to regulate bloodflow throughout your cardiovascular system.  The VENDYS test is a simple, non-invasive, office-based procedure. The entire test takes just 15 minutes.

The small temperature sensors are placed on both index fingers, to monitor the function of your arteries. A blood pressure cuff is placed on the left arm to check blood pressure.  Another cuff is placed on the right arm and will be inflated during the test, for 5 minutes, to stop the blood flow to the arm. This is the standard procedure for non-invasively testing the endothelium. The results of your test are immediately available.
