Lifeline screening

Life Line Screening will be at Canaan Baptist Church, 785 Barringer St., on Aug. 15. Appointments will begin at 9 a.m.
Recommended baseline screenings include stroke/carotid artery, atrial fibrillation, abdominal aortic aneurysm and peripheral arterial disease. The carotid artery screening uses ultrasound to identify blockages in the arteries in your neck, a leading cause of stroke.
The atrial fibrillation screening checks for an irregular heart beat and the abdominal aortic aneurysm screening looks for a ballooning of the largest artery in the body. Screening for peripheral arterial disease checks for blockages in the arteries of the arms and legs, a condition that leaves the individual at four to five times higher risk of heart disease.
Additional screenings can be added for a more comprehensive risk assessment and include C-reactive protein, a blood marker for vascular disease and diabetes; complete lipid panel including HDL/LDL and total cholesterol; glucose, a measure of blood sugar level which can determine your risk for diabetes; and an ultrasound screening for osteoporosis.
Pick any four screenings for $140. All eight screenings are $199.
