The types of places that they provide these screenings include places like community centers, corporations, churches, and senior centers. Life Line Screening events are provided across the contiguous United States.
The health screenings, which are performed by medical professionals, screen for a wide variety of illnesses and diseases. Among the many ailments they screen for are heart disease, diabetes, cholesterol, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and peripheral arterial disease. The services they offer are designed to be both affordable and reliable. If a health condition is caught early the medical outcomes are likely to be much more positive and the patients quality of life will be better maintained.
The equipment that Life Line Screening uses is technologically advanced. They offer three types of preventative health screening using this equipment; ultrasound screenings, finger-stick blood screenings, and limited electrocardiograph. Ultrasounds use sound waves in order to see inside the body. Among the conditions it can detect are bone mineral density, for osteoporosis, and carotid artery disease. Finger-stick blood screening is useful for checking glucose levels, liver health, and blood cholesterol. Limited electrocardiograph’s detect irregular heart beats and the patient doesn’t need to remove any clothing for the procedure.
