The preventative screenings in which Lifeline Screening provides are safe and non-invasive. The overall results of these screening will provide a marker of your overall health, and are intended to be shared with your personal physician to keep on record. Lifeline provides three separate types of screenings: ultrasound screenings, finger-stick blood screenings and limited electrocardiograph. Ultrasounds screenings help identify an abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery disease, peripheral arterial disease and any type of osteoporosis risks. The finger-stick blood screenings are important for identifying health risks, such as high cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes. Lastly, the limited electrocardiograph is for the purpose of identifying atrial fibrillation.
Additionally, Lifeline Screening offers information, such as an e-newsletter that will help an individual focus on their overall health. Lifeline Screening provides an abundance of health information on their website, as well as on their blog.
