Lifeline Screening examinations are simple and non-invasive procedures that check your body for its overall wellness and health. Your physician may recommend get one or perhaps you are yourself curious about things that may or may not be occurring to your body without your knowledge. Countless potentially fatal issues are undiagnosed each year and that can potentially be remedied with a simple screening. Most of the procedures for Lifeline Screening are non-invasive and require little to no preparation on your part, depending on which screening procedures you intend on having done.
Simply ensure that you are wearing comfortable and loose fitting clothing that is not too restrictive. Do not wear any jewelry and ensure that your cell phone or other electronic devices are turned off during the screening. All screening packages include a scan for abdominal aortic aneurysm. This will require that you fast for four hours prior to receiving your scan. It is also recommended that the meal you do eat prior to fasting is a light meal approximately one half of a usual meal size and ensure the food is as minimally gassy in nature as possible for more effective scanning.
What you should expect when you go for your screening is quite routine and simple. Enter the facility and complete your sign in form and wait for a technician to bring you back to a private screening room. You blood will be tested with a simple finger stick and a sample of a few drops of blood. Next will come measurements of your height and weight and then a technician will begin the ultrasound series of scans which are painless and non-invasive.
The final steps involve more non-invasive screenings utilizing EKG and Ultrasound technology to gather information about your body such as Bone Density Screening, Peripheral Artery Disease Screening, Atrial Fibrillation Screening, Carotid Artery Screening and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening. These screenings can provide your physician with much needed information to catch the signs of potentially fatal illnesses before they become unmanageable. Lifeline Screening uses only the highest caliber board certified medical professionals to examine your results after your screening.
