Getting Ready For a Lifeline Screening

It is not a secret that many people put off going to the doctor on a regular basis. This may be due to the fact that many feel that if they have no symptoms then everything is OK. This feeling can be very deceiving because most of the more serious health conditions start out with little or no symptoms.

Lifeline Screening provides comprehensive health screening with the very same tests that hospitals and medical testing facilities provide. The personnel at Lifeline Screening must have the same medical education and credentials found at any hospital or medical facility. The convenience and bargain pricing are also big factors in the success of Lifeline Screening. It is much simpler and less costly to get tests and screenings through Lifeline Screening.

Ultrasound plays a big role in the screening process with Lifeline Screening. Doppler ultrasound can actually “see” into the human body in real time. The blood flow through arteries can be observed which can help to pinpoint potential blockages. Just a few drops of blood from a prick on a finger can be developed into a full lipid blood panel. The panel can measure the cholesterol levels, the glucose levels for diabetic screening, and liver enzyme levels, to test for liver disease.

A limited electrocardiograph detects irregular heartbeat which can cause blood clots leading to strokes. These are just some of the examples of the types of tests involved. All results are then made available to the patient and to the patient’s doctor for further evaluation.

When you arrive at the Lifeline Screening location, you will be greeted by a friendly receptionist who will direct you to fill out paperwork with some basic information. You will be asked to give your name, address, zip code, phone, and your personal doctor.

Preparation for your visit would also include following instructions give when you made your appointment. For example, if you are having a blood test done, you will most likely be asked to fast for 12 hours prior to your test. Light clothing should be worn so you will be comfortable during the screenings. You will be asked to lift up your top or shirt with tests requiring access to those organs in those areas, but you will not be asked to disrobe.

Once the tests are concluded, which usually only takes about an hour, you will receive a report of the results which you can take to your doctor for further evaluation.
