I have found the device extremely helpful in finding who should have further cardiac examination, like a heart vessel scan for calcium score or immediate referral to a cardiologist. A few of my patients may owe their life to the result from this instrument.

“The Meridian DPA is a great tool that we use to assess and track cardiovascular health in our patients with metabolic syndrome, type two diabetes and PCOS!”

“Its a very good machine. We bought this machine in 2014 and we have never have a problem with this machine or customer service. I recommend this machine for any doctors who need screening for PVD and early detection for heart disease.”

“I practice in a multidisciplinary center focusing on patients with chronic and degenerative conditions. Many of these patients have exhausted traditional medical treatment options as well as their insurance. Therefore, cost effective and easily administered in office testing is important.
Early assessment of cardiovascular diseases waveform measurement / analysis and heart rate variability using the DPA has emerged as a valuable tool in this regard. The DPA is easy to use and has proven to be a valuable tool for patient education.
I have utilized the Meridian Digital Pulse Analyzer (DPA) in practice since 2007. It has been helpful as a screening device and in quantifying effectiveness of various treatment protocols in conjunction with lab results.
Presently, we are planning formal studies utilizing the DPA to correlate improvements in laboratory findings with changes in the PTG wave and assessing improvements in autonomic balancing in patients with chronic depression, stress, and other neurotransmitter imbalances.”

“The Meridian Medical DPA system is one of the best medical tools I have ever used and provides one of the most comprehensive cardiovascular screenings available. My work as a health practitioner over the past 20 years or so, with a particular focus on cardio issues, has been wonderfully enhanced through the use of Cardio Wave Analyzer Technology and this particular DPA system.
Use of this DPA system has taken me into doctor’s and practitioner’s offices (MD’s, ND’s, DC’s and etc.) throughout North America. Activities of screening and nutritional counseling as well as teaching proper use of the DPA system have found great reward both physiologically for so many clients of mine and patients of colleagues in the medical community and there has been wonderful financial reward as well.
This DPA system does exactly what Meridian Medical says it will do, providing an accurate picture of the health and functionality of the cardiovascular system. Among other things, the following are clearly measured and indicated:
• Pulse Waves provide a clear recognition of potential pulses (similar to electrocardiogram);
• Ejection Time is clearly provided (similar to echocardiogram);
• Pulse rate is obvious and measured;
• Pulse Height (similar to stroke volume) is provided;
• The PTG waveform indicating among other things the levels of arterial elasticity;
• The APG waveform measuring potential arteriosclerosis or hardness of the large and small arteries;
• Circulation Analysis measures the potential atherosclerosis or plaque buildup in the large, small and peripheral arteries.
• Finally, an APG Pattern Aging Grade is provided from which the cardiovascular biological age can be calculated.
Through careful nutritional guidance using the latest formulations of cardio supplementation patterned closest to the Nobel Standards, following the DPA screening/exam, patients and clients have seen amazing prevention and even ‘reversal of heart disease and strokes’ as shared by Nobel Laureate in Medicine, Dr. Louis J. Ignarro in his book, “NO More Heart Disease — How Nitric Oxide Can Prevent — Even Reverse — Heart Disease and Strokes.”
When the patient/client has their initial DPA screening/exam and then follows a recommended regimen of lifestyle correction including diet, exercise, sleep and careful supplementation, and then a year later comes back in for a follow-up DPA screening/exam, the results are very obvious and clear. The potential for prevention/reversal of cardiovascular problems is amazing.
In addition, this DPA system provides an extremely in-depth HRV (Heart Rate Variability) screening/exam, further opening up the diagnostic, health care and income possibilities. The HRV is fully comprehensive as well although I will not take the time to define and detail it here. There is great potential to help the patient/client with their nervous system and its interaction with the complete cardiovascular picture. The HRV provides wonderful insight for the practitioner/doctor as well as the patient/client. From the HRV results, a clear regimen can be suggested or prescribed for better health of the nervous system.
Without reservation, The DPA system is one of my favorite pieces of medical equipment!”

“Certainty in practice is what gives me the ability to build a strong professional relationship with my patients. The Meridian DPA is in a class of its own, when it comes to some of the technology that I depend on to communicate with my patients and to create the trust that we depend upon to move us towards the clinical excellence that we strive for.”
