Lifeline Screening is a company that provided medical screenings and test on a very convenient and cost-effictive basis. The tests are the same as those that are given in hospitals and facilities that provide medical tests. All the personnel that works for Lifeline Screening are required to meet the same educational and professiional levels as any heathcare worker in similar positions.
Many people don’t see a doctor regularly as they tend to thing that if they are feeling good, there is no need to visit a physician on a regular basis. The problem with that philosophy is that most of the serious medical conditions that we deal with have little or no symptoms in their earlier stages.
Lifeline Screen helps to fill the gap because it is much easier to set an appoinmtment on a timely basis rather that going through your personal doctor which can be a big delay along with fitting into a hospital schedule. It is also less costly in most cases to work with Lifeline.
Lifeline uses all manner of screenings such as ultrasound, finger-stick blood draw for lipid panels, and electrocardiograph for irregular heartbeat. Patients can choose among various tests and screenings depending upon what they may be concerned about.
Once you set your appointment you will be advised about what steps you need to take to prepare for the testing. If you are going to have a blood test, you should fast for a 6 to 12 hour period of time, depending on the test. You should drink water during the fast to stay hydrated.
You should also wear loose-fitting clothing, the women can wear slacks and a loose top, and the men can wear comfortable and loose-fitting trousers and a sports shirt. You may be asked to raise your top for certain tests like ultrasound and the electrocardiograph, but you will not be asked to disrobe.
The tests are very comprehensive and will give data that can be taken to your personal physician for further evaluation. The tests are all useful for further diagnosis and study by your doctor and other specialists who may need to get involved. Once your testing ans sreenings are over you will be given the results which can be taken to your doctor.
