Any type of healthcare procedure can be nerve racking and overwhelming. The medical professionals at Lifeline Screening are dedicated to helping you maintain your overall health and ensure that preventative measures are taken. The screenings are dedicated to identify issues that are happening as well as prevent them from happening. They offer many different types of procedures that can help screen for certain diseases such as aneurysms, artery diseases, ankle-brachial screenings and bone mineral density screenings. They also offer finger-stick blood screenings that can detect heart disease and diabetes. They also offer EKG’s to detect atrial fibrillation.
Prior to the procedures, the experienced medical staff will provide education on how you should prepare for each procedure. It really depends on the procedure that you’re having which determines how you should prepare. If you’re having testing done that requires the use of ultrasound machines, you will want to make sure that you wear loose clothing that includes a comfortable two-piece outfit. They recommend not wearing pantyhose, watches, no use of cell phones and no lotions/oils. The blood draw procedure requires fasting for at least 4 hours prior to your screening. The meal that you eat prior to your screening should be 1/2 of what you normally would eat. You are allowed to take your medication as prescribed and if you have diabetes, you can eat a diabetic meal that consists of toast any kind of juice or coffee. Some of their screenings do not require you to do anything but just show up. The professionals will ensure that you receive the proper instructions needed in order to complete a successful screening.
The benefits are endless when you make the decision to get a Lifeline Screening. They can detect many health issues or even health issues that may arise, so you can take advantage of the results and make the necessary changes to stay healthy. They work in conjunction with experts to ensure that each patient requires the best possible education and care plan available after their screening, so they can follow-up with their primary care physician.
