The great thing about most life line screenings is they are painless and non-invasive. This means preparing for one requires very little on the part of the patient.
And while some screenings will require the patient fast for several hours prior to the procedure, other screenings only require you wear loose clothing.
Before we dive in and share what you should wear to a life line screening, let’s first talk about why you should have one.
Some cardiovascular problems do not show overt symptoms right away. In some cases it can take years before you even know you have a problem. However, during that time there may still be internal damage taking place.
Over the years the damage can lead to advanced heart disease which can be very difficult to treat.
What’s even scarier is the fact that issues such as aortic aneurysms can exist without you even knowing about it. If not detected early enough an aneurysm can erupt and lead to death.
There is however good news. Research shows that early detection is the key to preventing issues from becoming severe.
And that is why getting a life line screening is so beneficial. Not only does it have the potential to save your life, but it can also ensure you live a long healthy life.
