Program: Cliff (we want Mary) Metsker introduced Jodie Schrier, a Health Service Coordinator for Life Line Screening.
Life Line Screening is the nation’s leading provider of vascular and osteoporosis screenings. Their ultrasound teams work to provide you and your physician with information to identify your risk of stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysms, peripheral arterial disease and osteoporosis.
The number one cause of stroke is carotid artery blockage. The screening scans the arteries, located in the neck, for plaque buildup. Stroke is the third leading killer in the US.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is an abnormal ballooning or enlargement of a blood vessel in the abdominal portion of the aorta (the largest blood vessel in the body). AAA is the 10 th leading cause of death in men, 13 th overall cause of death in the US. Males are four times more likely to have a AAA.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) exists when the arteries supplying blood to the lower extremities become narrowed or clogged by a buildup of fatty plaque. It is also a strong predictor of heart disease. PAD affects 1 in 20 people over the age of 50. Those with PAD are at 4 time’s greater risk of having a heart attack.
Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass leading to fragility and increased risk of fractures. Osteoporosis is the leading cause of hospital bed utilization. Estimated that over 25 million Americans have Osteoporosis; 2 million are men.
