Founded in 1993, Life Line Screening is a privately-owned healthcare company that conducts screening services across the U.S. The Texas-based company has successfully orchestrated millions of screenings worldwide since its inception. With state-of-the-art medical equipment, the organization looks to be on the frontline in prevention of diseases by detecting them early. Life Line Screening has publicly raised awareness pertaining issues such as how people should prepare for the company’s screenings. The company has given several guidelines to be followed in regard to participation in their screening processes.
Screenings for different diseases have different preparatory procedures. For instance, screenings for Stroke require people to wear loose and comfortable clothing such as open-collar and sleeveless shirts. Turtlenecks and wrist watches are discouraged for this procedure. It is also advisable to keep cell phones turned off. For testing of an Aortic aneurysm, Life Line Screening recommends wearing loose clothing and fasting for at least four hours before the procedure. However, Life Line Screening provides a more viable alternative for the same. For those who opt to eat within the four-hour period before screening, the company recommends eating light and non-gaseous foods.
For screenings of other conditions such as High Cholesterol, and Type 2 Diabetes, Life Line Screening recommends fasting for not less than twelve hours before the procedure is conducted. In the case of screening for conditions such as Elevated Liver Enzymes, the company has stated that nothing ought to be done in advance for preparation of the procedure. Regarding the length and procedure of these screening processes, Life Line Screening has reiterated that the same is conducted in less than an hour. A fraction of that time is used to prepare the relevant paperwork. It is worth noting that the period of screening may vary, depending on factors such as the number of tests recommended by the physician, and the stage of the disease infection. These tests are conducted using medical equipment found in any standard hospital facility. The procedures undertaken at Life Line Screening facilities have met the required standards of a recognized medical institution.
Medical experts have repeatedly highlighted the importance of people participating in such disease screening campaigns. By identifying symptoms at an early stage, physicians stand a greater chance of treating even supposedly incurable conditions. In the case of tumors, early detection is all it takes to save lives!
