Doppler Tests

If you suffer from leg ulcers or cold feet, you may be referred by your GP or nurse for a Doppler test.  This test is conducted by our HCAs and involves measuring the blood pressure in your arms and legs using a special Doppler machine.  The results can indicate the presence of peripheral vascular disease, which would require a referral to a specialist.

Because the Doppler test involves attaching a blood pressure cuff to your arms and ankles, we recommend wearing loose clothing to the appointment.
