- Impending, acute myocardial infraction (heart attack)
- Damaged heart muscle from earlier incidents (chest pains, etc.)
- Myocarditis- Pericarditis
- Heart Failure
- And conditions affecting cardiac function
Based on antigen/antibody thin film technology, and using a couple of drops of blood from your fingerprick, the test is 99% accurate for the detection of critical hemo-proteins.
The easy to use kit contains a primary and confirmatory test and yields results in minutes.
SCREENS FOR-MYOGLOBIN/CK-MB/TROPININ HEMO-PROTEINS
Despite advances in emergency medicine only 5% of those who suffer cardiac arres survive. One of the factors involved in the sudden onset of cardiac arrest is the BAZ2b gene. The prediction of cardiac problems is facilitated by the accu-cardioguard test.
Heart attacks and angina are the leading cause of death in America.
When muscles are damaged Myoglobin is released into the blood and is measurable in 2-4 hours. CK-MB can be detected within 3-8 hours. Tropinin is part of a 3 subunit complex which is released into the blood 4-6 hours after cardiac damage. The presence of these hemo-proteins expressed by heart muscle is a presymptomatic sign of cardiac problems.
Viaguard is now making available the Accu-Cardioguard easy-to-use at-home test kit that contains a primary and confirmatory test. Dual DNAffirm precision immunoassay procedures yield results more precise than older medical technologies. The entire test takes about 10 minutes.
Over 11 million people suffer from Angina in the United States alone. Persons with a family history of cardiac problems or those with an acute level of stress should test themselves regularly.
The onset of serious cardiac problems is unpredictable, instantaneous and serious. Many start slowly with subtle symptoms including low levels of pain and discomfort advancing toward a life threatening situation.
Symptoms include such things as chest discomfort, continuous or intermittent pains in the extremities, shortness of breath and sudden cold sweat and dizziness.
The Accu-Cardioguard test will instantly indicate if there are concerns that should be addressed because the test is specific for damage to cardiac muscle. A positive result is indicative of the need for consultation with your health care professional.
The test is based on sophisticated immunoassay techniques with a sensitivity to micro-levels of the expressed hemo-proteins.
