Ways To Prepare For Your Lifeline Screening Appointment

Too many people take their state of health for granted and they don’t visit a doctor much if at all. They reason that if they are feeling OK and have no symptoms that they are in relatively good health so why spend the time or money to see a doctor? The only problem with this model is that most of the more serious conditions that become serious problems start out with little to no symptoms.

That is why Lifeline Screening works so well. People can easily set up an appointment for screening for a day or two away and not have to spend the time of seeing their primary doctor to be referred to a testing facility. The doctor referral method can take weeks compared to a few days with Lifeline Screening. The pricing is very competitive too.

Lifeline Screening has screenings and tests that give indications of what is really going on in the body. Ultrasound lets doctors “see” under the skin and even allows the watching of the blood flow in arteries, helping to locate any potential blockage. Elecrocardiographing allows the locating of an irregular heartbeat which can cause blood clots, and stroke.

When you set your appointment, you will be told about any preparations you should take care of before you come. If you are going to have a blood test, you will be advised to fast for a 6 to 12 hour period before your test time depending on the screening you are going to have.

You should dress casually, with loose fitting clothing so you will be comfortable during your screenings. Women should wear slacks and a loosely fitted at the bottom blouse or top. Men can wear comfortable slacks and a sports shirt. You will be asked to lift up your top for certain tests such as electrocardiograph and the ultrasound screenings. You will at no time be asked to disrobe for the tests.

When you arrive at the Lifeline Screening Center, you will be given paperwork that will ask for your name, address, zip code, health history and the name of your doctor. The time spent is usually no more than an hour, and when you are finished you will be given a summary of the results to be given to your doctor.
