Life Line Screening Save Lives

LifeLine Screening has been providing individuals and company employees life-saving screening procedures that provide information that a patient can give to their doctor for further evaluation. These screening tests that LifeLine provides are normally not available in the local doctor’s office.

With Lifeline Screening, there are three types of screening that can be given to patients. One is ultrasound screenings. This is the sending of sound waves which was first discovered during World War II when our Navy personnel used this technology to discover enemy submarines. With the medical usage, sound waves are sent and the shapes of the internal. Organs are shown and can be analyzed.

Ultrasound screening shows the blood flow in our arteries such as the Carotid and Aortic to screen for blockages which can be life threatening. They can also show the level of bone density which can measure the possibility of Osteoporosis setting in.

Blood samples can be taken by Finger-stick screenings for blood. A full lipid blood panel can be derived which will give an entire array of cholesterol and triglyceride measurements. The blood test also measures glucose levels, which helps to prevent diabetes and the levels of liver enzymes can also be measured.

The Limited Electrograph measures what is going on with a person’s heart. An irregular heartbeat, also called atrial defibrillation, can be detected. A-Fib, as it is called can be a serious condition because the irregular beat can cause the blood to clot, thus causing blood clots that can move through the body causing a stroke. A-fib is not always apparent to a patient and if left untreated can be very dangerous.

LifeLine Screening is available at community centers all over the country and at many employer settings where employees can take advantage of the service while they are at work.
