Dr. Andrew Manganaro is on a Mission to Catch Medical Emergencies Before They Happen

Posted on May 24, 2017

Dr. Andrew Manganaro is a busy, hardworking doctor and entrepreneur using modern technology to screen patients for medical weaknesses before they wind up in the Emergency Room.

He spent 35 years as a highly regarded cardiac, thoracic and vascular board certified surgeon in private practice. In his practice he often treated patients with such conditions as carotid embolic strokes and ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. Those could have been prevented if the patient had known of their risk.

Therefore, when he left his private practice, he became Chief Medical Officer of Life Line Screening. That puts him in charge of quality control. He oversees their panel of board certified experts that review all ultrasounds performed by the company. His mission is to ensure everything the company does is clinically correct.

He’s excited by how the medical community is accepting the screening process. It’s important to identify potential problems before sympoms manifest. That’s when they can be prevented with proper medication and lifestyle changes.

He also oversees their research studies. They have screen over 8 million people, giving them one of the largest such databases in the world. This provides the data for important studies.

With Life Line Screening, patients undergo extensive exams and tests to evaluate their basic health and medical status. The idea is to catch potential problems before they become medical emergencies. The range of procedures Life Line Screening offers goes far beyond the typical annual checkup.

It includes such items as testing for testosterone deficiency, levels of Vitamin D, osteoporosis and bone density, colorectal cancer, carotid artery disease, kidney function, cholesterol, liver function, glucose and diabetes, and atrial fibrillation screening. They then consolidate the results into an individual 6 for Life report that evaluates, based on your test results, your risk for six important medical problems: stroke, diabetes, heart disease, heart failure, lung cancer and chronic pulmonary obstructive disease.

Capital Anesthesiology Association knocks the lights out of surgical pain

Posted on December 06, 2016

The Capitol Anesthesiology Association is an Austin-based group of physicians, nurses and technicians who are dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality surgical pain management available. CAA is recognized by national organizations, including the Anesthesia Quality Institute for consistently providing top-tier service. And all CAA members are certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology.

Going under the knife can be a nerve wracking experience. With a CAA member physician, you can rest assured that you will not experience unnecessary pain or anxiety before, during or after your surgery. With over 80 physicians and 130 CRNA’s, Capitol Anesthesiology Associates can provide the right team of specialists for whatever medical challenge the day brings.

CAA member physicians practice at all Level One Trauma Centers across Austin as well as most acute care hospitals and many outpatient medical centers. CAA members also represent most specialties including obstetrics, pediatrics and cardio-thoracic disciplines.

What is anesthesiology?

The word anesthesia is a Greek portmanteau which means “no feeling”. Some people mistakenly believe the term to mean the drugs used. In fact, anesthesia is simply the state of not being able to perceive feeling. General anesthesia, or total unconsciousness, is desirable for major surgeries such as open heart surgery. Local anesthesia, such as that used for tooth extraction, is commonly used for more minor procedures. But the end goal is always the same – to minimize the acute pain and distress caused by medical procedures.

Anesthesia, even for minor procedures, should always be administered by a licensed physician. For more information please consult CAA at capines.com.
