MCKINNEY - Under a large outdoor tent on a fittingly warm and breezy Tuesday afternoon -- the kind of pristine day that tends to promote a facile forgetfulness of issues related to health problems -- Dr. M. Akram Khan, director of the Cardiac Center of Texas, spoke matter-of-factly to more than 100 doctors and dignitaries gathered for the christening of The Center for Preventive Medicine North Texas.
"My job is a plumber," Khan said.
Khan said national policy makers understand preventive medicine is the responsible solution to rising health costs and curtailing disease. The majority of health care dollars are being spent on interventions associated with acute and chronic diseases, Khan said, many of which could have been ameliorated to the tune of less money, not to mention discomfort and threat of death to the patient, had they been uncovered earlier during through preventative measures.
Khan referenced Bill Clinton - known to indulge in a cheeseburger or three -- as the perfect example of a healthcare system that does not do enough to avert potentially catastrophic, presymptomatic disease.
"Early detection and management of Peripheral Arterial disease, or PAD's can prevent the progression of the disease," Khan, 44, said.
"In simple terms PAD is compromised circulation in the lower extremities of the body," Khan said. "It causes discomfort in the legs when you walk or do any activity."
He added that the pain ceases when the person is at rest.
"There is a mismatch when you walk or do an activity," Khan said.
"The first goal of treatment is to identify and change lifestyle factors," Khan said.
Some of the factors that need to be changed include lack of exercise, stopping smoking, and moving away from a high fat diet that could be the cause of the disease.
Khan has done free screening in the Frisco, Allen and McKinney to help people discover if they have PADs.
The screening test is simple and painless test. The test called an ankle brachial index compares the blood pressure in the legs to the blood pressure in the arms to determine how well the blood is flowing and if further tests are needed.
"This is one of the best preventive initiatives for early detection," Khan said.
The test can also help to diagnose heart disease, stroke and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysmal.
"If we are able to catch the disease early we will be able to prevent a major disaster like a heart attack of stroke," Khan said. "Our goal is stop it before it happens."
The free screenings performed in September will be happening again.
"We are planning more screenings in the future but we haven't set a date at this time," Khan said.
Don Hudson, director business development has worked with Khan for 11 years.
Rebecca Dawson is the Center for Preventive Medicine's director and said Khan is a very hard working person.
Khan is from Pakistani but came to the United States when he was 25 years old. He is married to Nandia and has three children a girl, Hebah 13; and boys Arhum age 9 and Yusuf two months old. He has been in McKinney for 12 years
Dallas CBS News 11 talks with Dr. Akram Khan about the dangers of 2nd-3rd degree burns from playground equipment accidents.
Dr. Akram Khan with The Center for Preventive Medicine said there are reports of 2nd-3rd degree burns all across the U.S. from playground equipment accidents.
Khan explained with air temperature reported at 106 degrees, the temperatures on even plastic playground equipment can be 150 degrees or more.
"So when a kid -- with the softer skin -- walks around accidentally on those things -- especially with the metal and the plastic -- they're going to burn very quickly. It's very dangerous for them," he said.
Khan said skin can burn at 124 degrees.
Dr. Akram Khan says financial stress can be one of the worst.
"People are just freaking out," said Dr. Akram Khan of the Center for Preventative Medicine.
Dr. Akram Khan says financial stress can be one of the worst.
In the last two weeks, he's listened to more complaints of chest pain and often has doubled his patients' medication.
"I'm seeing people come in with lots of palpitation, a rhythm problem, which is most likely due to stress," he said.
Dr. Khan says he saw a similar jump in his patient load seven years ago, right after 9-11. And he says stress alone can be deadly.
"Stress can precipitate a heart attack and early, premature death - that's a fact," he said.
Another fact, early detection and prevention are the best medicines.
Dr. Khan advises his patients to track their diet, pulse, sleep and exercise - more closely than ever - when financial fears are worse.
Dr. Khan says long-term cardio health is really the responsibility of the patient and getting a spouse and children involved are the keys to success.
