Life Line Screening is a company that gives tests to the general public for the purpose of detecting any abnormalities in their organs, arteries and vital processes. These are the same tests that are performed in hospitals and medical testing facilities.

Test such as a limited electrocardiograph, which detects an irregular heartbeat, a bone density to detect osteoporosis, and a finger-stick blood test to get a full lipid panel to gauge cholesterol are among the many tests that are given.

One major group of tests uses ultrasound which enables the technician to literally have x-ray vision, as the circulation of the veins and arteries can be viewed in real time. This can help to view blockages and circulatory patterns of the vessels.

Preparation for these types of tests is not particularly out of the ordinary. People are advised to wear loose fitting clothing with women wearing a top and some slacks. Men can wear a sports shirt and loose fitting trousers.

Depending upon the type of test you are going to have done, diet the 12 hours before a test can be critical. If you are having blood work done you should find out if it is a fasting blood test screening that is going to be conducted. In this instance a person would fast for the 12 hours before the test. In most cases heavy eating before any type of test like this could be detrimental to the test results.

A person can expect that most screening tests will take up to an hour of time. There is some paperwork to be handled, but it is minimal and takes relatively little time. If an individual is having multiple tests done, the time period involved will be longer based on number of tests and their complexity.

Lifeline screening is a screening and testing company that caters to individuals who don’t go to doctors, is in between doctor’s visits, or just never thought about going to see a doctor. The screenings are given at a discount when compared to the costs charged by doctors and medical testing facilities. The convenience and discounted pricing attract many people who otherwise would have never been screened or tested for anything.
