The welcome desk is your first stop when arriving at Life Line Screening. You complete a form and if applicable you provide any payment that is necessary.
While in the waiting room further paperwork is done. A technician will call your name when it is time for the appointment. Once your name is called by a technician it is time for the screening room.
In the screening room the appointment will begin by the technician pricking your finger to obtain small samples of blood. The blood is usually taken from an individual’s ring finger and/or middle finger.
At this point an individual’s stature, weight, and physique measurements may be taken before various screenings occur at your appointment.
Then a bone screening will happen. The technician should ask you to remove socks and shoes. Once you are barefoot the technician will put your foot into a machine. This screening provides bone density results.
Then arterial screening will be done by a technician. Cuffs will be placed on the arms and ankles which will allow the amount of pressure in the limbs to be measured. Then the technician will place electrode stickers on the wrist and ankles. The occurrence of an irregular heartbeat will then be tested.
Then abdominal screening will occur. During this screening an individual will be on his or her back. Then a transducer will be used to detect if there is abdominal aorta expansion.
At this point blood test results will be provided. The rest of your results will be mailed within fifteen days. Once you receive you results in the mail they can be provided to your doctor. At this point your health screening appointment is complete.
In conclusion, Life Line Screening provides an amicable and soothing atmosphere from the moment you step inside.
