Non Communicable Diseases statistics in Barbados 2011
An Early Detection Diagnostic Test
The bodies cardiovascular system is a complex network made up of blood vessels and the heart. It is responsible for pumping blood through the body, carrying oxygen and vital minerals and nutrients through organs and systems, and helping to removing waste substances.
With so many heart related diseases and illnesses, including angina, heart attack, heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms to name a few, it’s no wonder cardiovascular diseases is the world’s single biggest killer. In Barbados according to the World Health Organization statistics cardiovascular related diseases (CVD) accounted for 31% of the total number of deaths in the country in 2011*, higher than cancer at 22% and diabetes at 10%.
The health of the cardiac system is something that cannot be overlooked, there are many young people even athletes with cardiac abnormalities that might not be aware of them or of the risks they pose on health. From children to young adults, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is a condition that can cause young sudden cardiac death.
However many of these deaths young or old are preventable. Taking charge of your health by having a simple non-invasive screening can make huge differences to your life and give you a heads up on your cardiovascular system.

Cardio Pulse is a simple, non-invasive and painless angiogram alternative device placed over the left hand finger that measures your pulse waveform for 3 minutes to reveal early warning signs of cardiovascular disease and peripheral vascular disease. It also measures your physical and mental stress as well as your level of resistance to stress to let you know if you need to rest and relax or engage in exercise or other physical activities. It will determine your Cardio Score which helps illustrate your cardiovascular age or plaque buildup in your arteries.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is the degree of fluctuation in the length of intervals between heart beats. HRV determines one’s overall health status and autonomic nervous system.
Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is the part of the peripheral nervous system that regulates involuntary action (eg. respiration, digestion) of the intestines, heart, smooth muscle, and glands.
Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) concerned with nourishing, healing and regeneration of the body.
Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) concerned with directing more blood to the muscles and the brain to activate the body’s fight-or-flight response.
Balanced ANS shows good balance between stress and relaxation Too much PNS may be a sign of depression, low blood sugar, or
even metal toxicity.
Too much SNS may be a sign of anxiety, irritability and nervousness. You may have overactive thyroid, adrenal glands, higher blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
Stress Resistance is the body’s capability to fight stress.
Arterial Health Analysis
Eccentric Constriction (EC) – is the constriction power of vessels from the left ventricle. Bad EC means blood vessels weakening and may affect the RBV.
Arterial Elasticity (AE) – is the vascular elasticity and resistance of the blood vessels. Bad AE may be a sign of early cardiovascular disease like atherosclerosis and peripheral circulation dysfunction.
Remaining Blood Volume (RBV) – remaining blood in the vessels after systolic contraction of the heart. Bad RBV means blood vessels are aging and thus not pumping blood effectively.
