Dr. Amy Doneen’s landmark research cited as “eye-opening” inspiration to dental providers

Amy Doneen News

In OralHealth, dental hygienist Lorraine Gambacourt writes, “The first time I heard Dr. Bradley Bale, MD, and Dr. Amy Doneen, DNP, speak about their latest research and the effect of oral health on arterial disease was at a 2016 AAOSH conference. From that point, I began to view my role as a dental hygienist much differently. It opened my eyes up to multiple ways we can impact our patients to aid them in arterial wellness and reduce their risk of the top two deadly diseases – heart attack and stroke.”

Dr. Amy Doneen quoted as expert in high blood pressure management

Amy Doneen News

In the PostIndependent, Dr. Greg Feinsinger writes, “Based on studies of large populations, it’s clear that ideal (blood pressure) is less than 115/75. Above that level, the risk of heart attacks and strokes starts to climb, especially at levels of 140/90 and above. In their book “Beat the Heart Attack Gene,” Brad Bale, M.D. and Amy Doneen, RN, PhD state that in order to prevent heart attacks, doctors should keep their patients’ blood pressures below 120/80.

Landmark Bale Doneen Study First to Reveal that Oral Bacteria Can Cause Heart Disease

Amy Doneen Heart Health News

Millions of Americans have a dental disorder that can lead to heart attacks and strokes, according to a new peer-reviewed study published in Postgraduate Medical Journal (PMJ).  The researchers discovered that bacteria responsible for many cases of periodontal (gum) disease (PD) can also be a contributing cause of cardiovascular disease, the leading killer of Americans.

The landmark study builds on earlier research, including a scientific statement from the American Heart Association, showing with level A evidence an independent association between PD–an oral infection affecting the majority of U.S. adults over age 30–and cardiovascular disease (CVD), which is also called heart disease.

A Heart-to-Heart with Amy Doneen 

admin Heart Health News

“A lot of people wonder how that could have happened to Princess Leia?” says Amy Doneen. “Why did Tim Russert have a stress test and die a week later?” asks the medical director of the Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention center and adjunct professor at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center.

She thinks she knows the answer. They, and millions of other Americans, suffer from cardiovascular disease that hasn’t been effectively diagnosed and managed.

As an example, she notes that while cardiac stress testing has good diagnostic value, it may create a false sense of security. That’s because stress tests are considered “normal’ unless there’s evidence that blood vessels are 70 percent or more occluded. Yet, she says 86 percent of heart attacks occur in people whose vessels are less than 70 percent occluded.
