Life Line Screening is a company that provides EKG and ultrasound screenings to its patients that are designed to be convenient, affordable, and painless. The screenings take place in easily accessible locations such as churches, community centers, senior centers, and businesses across the United States. The professionals at Life Line Screening believe that by catching problems early through their screenings patients will have a much better chance to effectively treat them.
It was in 1993 that Life Line Screening was founded in Independence, Ohio. They offer three types of preventive health screenings; ultrasounds, finger-stick blood screenings, and limited electrocardiograph. These screening find medical issues such as carotid artery disease, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, liver injury, and irregular heartbeat. The screenings are designed to be able to be taken when clothed and are painless.
The screenings are performed by licensed healthcare professionals. The medical equipment that is used to do the screenings is also the same as that which is found in hospitals. Also, the results of the screenings are read by doctors who have been board-certified. The results of the screenings are easily shared by the patients with their primary physicians. If any of the results are negative this gives the physician the opportunity to develop a medical plan for the patient and/or suggest lifestyle changes.
In an additional effort to help patients make better choices, Life Line Screening operates a blog that helps people be informed about wellness choices. One recent article shows how stress can affect a person’s health and provides healthy ways of dealing with it. Another recent article shows how even a treat can be made healthier by providing a no-bake cherry cheesecake that is lower fat as well as uses much less added sugar than most cherry cheesecake recipes call for.
