Cardiovascular Functions

Some of the most commonly repeated tests are heart and blood vessel measurements... barely a week goes by without some combination of them. Usually, we only have a light breakfast of fruit before these, and then when the suite of tests are done, we have the rest of the meal.

On the main TESTS list page, there are new links to the three main Cardiovascular Tests, most of which are done at the same time, or in varied combinations with Reactive Hyperemia, where they inflate blood pressure cuffs on our arms and legs for about 7 minute intervals, and take measurements of vessels all over the body...

I heard from Mrs. L (my daughter) that you were being evacuated. Sorry to hear that. When I was 10 yrs old I spent a little in the Naval Hospital in Galveston! Very pretty area. Could they not continue the tests after the hurricane?
