Metro Health Hospital Holds Free PAD Screening on Oct. 10

Metro Health Hospital will offer free screenings for peripheral artery disease on Saturday, Oct. 10.

PAD screenings are quick, painless and non-invasive. They involve taking a person’s blood pressure in the arms and ankles. The screenings take approximately 30 minutes and are available 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Metro Health Hospital. Space is limited and registration is required. Call 616.242.4880 or visit to register.

Individuals suffering from leg pain may have PAD or other circulation issues that should not be ignored. PAD can be a devastating diagnosis and can result in limb amputation. Screenings can help detect the disease in high-risk patients early enough to allow them to make necessary lifestyle and diet changes to improve their circulatory system. The goal of screening patients is to decrease the need for amputation.

Patients should seek a PAD screening if they are experiencing leg pain when walking that ceases once they stop moving. Another indicator of PAD is having wounds or open sores that have difficulty healing. Patients at high risk include those who are over the age of 50 with diabetes, those who are obese, have a history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, other circulatory issues or family history of PAD. Smokers are also at a higher risk, as are African Americans and Native Americans.

Funding for the screening is provided by donations to the Metro Health Hospital Foundation.
