Life Line Screening’s Mobile Health Testing Units Are Coming to Trinity!

Stroke and other serious problems can be avoided and treated before they become life threatening. That’s what makes Life Line Screening such a valuable service. Over 5 million Americans have already taken advantage of these important screenings—and with good reason. 80% of strokes are preventable. –Source: National Stroke Association 2007
Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer in the United States and a leading cause of permanent disability. The National Stroke Association states that your risk of stroke doubles each decade after age 55. Unfortunately, many significant vascular problems go undetected until it is too late. Now you have the opportunity to screen for potential strokes, aneurysms and heart disease before they become life-threatening.
Stroke/Carotid Artery Screening - $70
Ultrasound evaluation of the carotid arteries that screens for buildup of fatty plaque – leading cause of stokes.
Heart Rhythm Screening (Atrial Fibrillation) - $70
Painless 6-lead EKG that can detect an irregular heart rhythm. Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of stroke 5 times.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening - $70
Ultrasound is used to screen for the presence of an aneurysm in the abdominal aorta that could lead to a ruptured aortic artery.
Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening - $60
Evaluates for peripheral arterial disease (plaque buildup) in the lower extremities. It is 4-5 times more likely you will die from heart disease if you have peripheral arterial disease.
Life Line Screening will complete all 4 vascular screenings for only $139. Add an osteoporosis screening for only $10 more. To compliment their ultrasound screenings, Life Line Screening now offers finger-stick blood tests for Cholesterol, Glucose, and Liver Enzymes.
You may think that your physician would order these screenings if they were necessary. However, insurance companies typically will not pay for screenings unless there are symptoms. Unfortunately, 4 out of 5 people that suffer a stroke have no apparent symptoms or warnings signs. That is why having a Life Line Screening is so important to keep you and your loved ones healthy and independent.
