Life Line Screening is a company that provides medical screening in different areas with the sole objective of determining areas of the body that may be in jeopardy. The process involves three different types of screening including ultrasound screenings, finger-stick blood screening, and a limited electrocardiograph screening.
With these three basic screening techniques, Life Line Screening trained attendants can gather enough information to satisfy basic medical requirements to display basic results that show a person’s current status in some areas.
For example, the finger-stick blood test enables the screening that can show a complete blood panel which reveals complete blood lipid test results. This test gives a reading about the levels of cholesterol in the blood, the “good” cholesterol and the “bad” cholesterol levels as well as a total cholesterol reading. It can also measure liver enzyme levels, triglyceride levels, glucose levels, and C-protein levels, indicators of heart health.
The ultrasound screening reveals the condition of the actual organs as far as how they are positioned in the body and if there are any abnormalities or occlusions. For instance, this test will reveal the condition of any aneurysms, carotid artery occlusions, the density of bone minerals, denoting possible osteoporosis, and other health indicators that would be unseen otherwise.

The electrocardiograph, or EKG as it is popularly known, can reveal the rhythms of the heart and will detect abnormal heart rhythms such as atrial fibrillation, or A-Fib. A-Fib is a producer of blood clots which can result in a stroke. The speed of the heart beating can also be a health indicator along with the shape and relationships of the sine waves are revealing as well.
All of Life Line Screening‘s tests are non-invasive and easily conducted by well-trained medical personnel who are experts in their respective fields. All the information is then shared with the patient’s doctor for further evaluation and treatment if it is needed.
