How To Read Your EIS Scan
Below are the terms and definition of terms required when reviewing and interpreting the results of your EIS Scan.
Phase Angle- Indicator of cellular health. Ability of cells to store energy, permeability of cellular membranes and body cell mass.
LVSW- Normal Range (58-104 gm) Left Ventricular Stroke Work. LVSW refers to the work done by the ventricle to eject a volume of blood into the aorta.
SVR- Normal Range (900-1300) Systemic Vascular Resistance. SVR is the indicator of the peripheral resistance to flow that must be overcome to push blood through the circulatory system.
BP- Systolic blood pressure. Normal Range (110-130) The pressure of the blood in the artery when the heart contracts. It is the top and higher number in a BP reading. Diastolic blood pressure. Normal Range (75-85) The pressure of the blood in the artery when the heart relaxes between beats. It is the bottom and lower number in a BP reading.
V02- Normal Range (200-300 ml/min-m2) Oxygen uptake is the final step in the oxygen transport pathway and it represents the oxygen supply for tissue metabolism.
D02- Normal Range (800-1200 ml/min-m2) The rate of oxygen transport in the arterial blood
SI- Normal Range (7-9m/s) Stiffness Index. Corresponding to the large artery (aorta is the main one) stiffness. SI increased should be related to the aorta valve calcification (sclerosis) or high cholesterol and/or high BP.
RI- Normal Range (30-45%) Reflection Index. Corresponding to the small and medium artery (including the coronary and carotid) stiffness. It is similar to the argmentation index. RI increased should be related to arteriosclerosis (often associated with hypertension) or atherosclerosis (athermanous plaque) or vasoconstriction (excess of norepinephrine)
Cardiac Output- Normal Range (4.1-5.0) Indicator of the volume of blood being pumped by the heart in a minute
Cardiac Index- Normal Range (2.6-3.2 L/min/meter2) Vasodynamic indicator that related the cardiac output (CO) to body surface area (BSA)
SDNN- Normal Range (40-80ms) Standard Deviation of all NN (normal to normal) Intervals. SDNN reflects all the cyclic components responsible for variability in the period of recording. SDNN should be an indicator of both sympathetic and parasympathetic regulation
RMSSD- Normal Range (35-65ms) The square root of the mean of the sum of the squares of differences between adjacent normal to normal intervals. Indicator of parasympathetic activity. Reflects the electrical stability of the heart. RMSSD and SDNN both reduced will increase the risk of heart disease occurrence.
Pulse Pressure- Normal Range (30-40mmHg) Difference between the systolic and diastolic pressure is known as the pulse pressure. It is proportional to the amount of blood ejected from the left ventricle during systole and inversely proportional to the compliance of the aorta.
Heart Rate- Normal Range (70-80 bpm) Number of heart beats per minute
GABA- its full scientific name is gamma-aminobutyric acid – occurs naturally in your brain, where it functions as a neurotransmitter and helps regulate brain activity
Leptin- Normal Range (7-9) Indicator of satiety, appetite control related to the fat mass, insulin, and glucocorticoids production estimated from the ESTeck indicators cross analysis. If your leptin is high it will make it harder to lose excess weight. Most likely you must get rid of inflammation or toxins.
Cortisol- Normal Range (7-9) Indicator of stress and/or sleeping disorder estimated from the ESTeck indicators cross analysis.
Cardiovascular Score-7-31. Estimated the risk factors and predicts cardiovascular events. Color coded*
Homeostasis Score-7-31. The patient potential adaptation to lifestyle, disorders, diseases or current treatments and any factors(temperature, stress etc.) Indicates need for treatment or lifestyle change. Color coded*
Lifestyle Score- 7-31. Color Coded*
