The leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings in the country. Life Line Screening imparts advice on how to prepare for screenings as well as what to wear during a screening.
According to Life Line Screening, many of its screenings involve an insignificant amount of or no preparation.
While some screenings necessitate several hours of fasting, others may simply have a need for loose clothing or short sleeves.
For example, patients being screened for a carotid artery disease (stroke) should not wear turtleneck shirts but rather they should be dressed in a short-sleeved shirt that is unfastened at the collar.
Patients undergoing a screening for atrial fibrillation (stroke) should wear relaxing two piece attire that involves unrestricting clothing. They should not wear pantyhose, balm or oil or a watch.
Life Line Screening recommends patients undertaking an ankle-brachial index (peripheral arterial disease) screening wear a cozy and relaxed two piece loose outfit, a short-sleeved blouse or shirt and no pantyhose.
A pleasant and relaxed two piece outfit of loose clothing is also recommended for those undergoing an abdominal aortic aneurysm screening. These patients are also asked to fast for four hours preceding their appointment and eat no more than a light meal four hours before the screening. Prescribed medication may be taken during the fast period.
What’s more patients being screened for a complete lipid panel (high cholesterol) or glucose (type 2 diabetes) should fast for eight hours while those being screened for elevated liver enzymes (ALT/AST) or hs-CRP (elevated C-reactive protein) are not required to do anything in advance for either screening.
Life Line Screening assists patients in uncovering a suitable screening event in their neighborhood and makes it easier for them to plan their appointment. They also bring all screenings to an end within 90 minutes or less.
What’s more, highly trained Board-Certified Physicians evaluate and assess all screenings.
