The epidemiology of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in the Caucasian population, and the impact it has on the provision of health care services, are relatively well defined. By comparison, very little appears to be known about PAD in the non-Caucasian by: ethnic minorities into the U.S. health care system, espe-cially the public health system. The concept of cultural difference is becoming more salient in primary health care and the management of chronic illness, yet remains prob-lematic for health care providers and patients alike.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD), sometimes also called peripheral vascular disease (PVD), is a circulation disorder that slowly gets worse over time. Calcium and fat materials build up inside the artery walls, making your arteries narrow, blocked, or weak.

This makes it harder for blood to flow. Lack of support for people with vascular diseases, including peripheral arterial diseases (PAD), may expose them to dramatic health care costs due to acute, even fatal, cardiovascular events.

What Is Peripheral Vascular Disease. Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a slow and progressive circulation disorder that affects the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels outside of the heart and brain, causing narrowing, blockages or spasms in these blood vessels.

As a result, organs and muscles supplied by these vessels—such as the brain or legs—may not get enough blood flow to. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for peripheral artery disease and cardiovascular disease risk with the ankle-brachial index in asymptomatic adults.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is an important healthcare problem and is an indicator of widespread atherosclerosis in other vascular territories, such as the cerebral and coronary circulations.

Despite improvements in technology, interventional therapies, medications and awareness, disparities remain in the care of patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD).

The elimination of these health care disparities is a goal of paramount importance of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Peripheral artery disease is an under-diagnosed, chronic and progressive disease caused by narrowing of the arteries outside of the heart and brain.

Previously called peripheral vascular disease (PVD), PAD is now recommended to describe atherosclerotic disease affecting the lower or upper extremity arteries (Creager, et al., ). Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), also called peripheral arterial disease (PAD), is a condition in which in which narrowed blood vessels outside the heart cannot deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to the body.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) for African Americans One in every 20 Americans over the age of 50 has P.A.D., a condition that raises the risk for heart attack and stroke.

Peripheral arterial disease, or P.A.D., develops when your arteries become clogged with plaque—fatty deposits that limit blood flow to your limbs, especially your legs. Peripheral vascular disease (PVD, also known as 'peripheral artery disease') refers to diseases of arteries outside the heart and brain.

The build-up of atheroma (fatty deposits on the walls of the arteries) makes the arteries narrower and restricts the flow of blood to the part of the body affected.

Yet, most health care professionals have little or no training on how to deal with the challenges of cultural diversity. Managing Diversity in Health Care offers professionals an essential handbook for learning to become more culturally sensitive and responsive to both coworkers and patients in order to deliver quality health care services.CHAPTER 35 / Nursing Care of Clients with Peripheral Vascular Disorders the fingers and toes may occur.
