Lifeline Screening provides inexpensive medical screening for people who want to know more about their state of health. The equipment used to perform the screenings are normally not available at doctor’s offices but are usually found at hospitals and medical testing facilities.
Many people seldom go to the doctor age are thus vulnerable to illness and disease simply because they do not know they have a disease until it may be too late. Thus the tests that are made available from Lifeline Screenings can be lifesavers for those who may not be aware of medical situations that could be life-threatening.
The ultrasound test is similar to that of a new mother finding out whether she will be having a boy or a girl. Sound waves are sent into the body, and the images of the organs are displayed in real time. From this scan, it can be determined if there are blockages in any arteries and it can also determine bone density, showing possible osteoporosis.

The finger-stick blood test takes a few drops of blood from the fatty portion of a finger. From this small sample, a complete lipid panel is produced which shows the cholesterol levels, the glucose levels which tests for diabetes, certain cardiovascular indicators, and the levels of liver enzymes.
The limited electrocardiograph shows indications of atrial fibrillation or A-Fib as it is also called. This is an irregular heartbeat, and it can be very serious. A-Fib can cause blood clots in the arteries which can lead to stroke.This is something that a person’s doctor should know about right away, and yet the condition is not always evident to an individual who has it.
All of these tests are non-invasive and easy to do. The results are shared with the doctor of the individual. Testing locations are found on the Lifeline website for easy accessibility.
