Health Screenings

Wellness Express can bring organized screenings to your work site that are intended to assist your employees and their families in making better decisions regarding their health. We organize ON-SITE Health Screening Fairs to educate employees about proper health and prevention of disease to lower healthcare costs and improve employee productivity in the work place.


Cholesterol

Total Lipid Profile: A lipid profile is a detailed measure of fats in your blood. It consists of measuring Total Cholesterol, HDL (Good Cholesterol), LDL (Bad Cholesterol), Triglycerides (Fatty Acids & Glycerol), Glucose (Blood Sugar), and your Risk Ratio of developing Coronary Heart Disease.

Total cholesterol, HDL, and LDL levels may be improved through diet and exercise. You should increase your intake of foods that are high in fiber and lower your intake of foods that are high in saturated fats.

Executive 13: This venous blood draw includes a Chem 14, Complete Blood Count, HDL, LDL, Risk Ration, TSH(Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), and PSA(Prostate Specific Antigen) if requested. The blood samples are sent to the lab and results should be received by mail within a few days.

Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is determined by measuring the force of blood flowing through artery walls.

It is represented by a top number, (Systolic), which is when the heart is contracting, and a bottom number, (Diastolic), which is when the heart is resting.

Uncontrolled high blood pressure, (Hypertension), can lead to multiple life-threatening conditions, such as heart attack and stroke. It may be controlled through diet, exercise, and medication.

Bone Density

Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by low bone density, in which the bones become brittle, weak, and more likely to fracture. Osteoporosis in Women, due to hormonal changes, often goes undetected.

The Bone Density Screening is used to detect how strong or weak your bones are. Our Omni sense Ultrasound Machine measures sound waves as they pass through the forearm and determines whether your bone density is Normal, Osteopenia, or Osteoporosis.

Thyroid Screening

TSH: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is a hormone synthesized and secreted by cells in the pituitary gland, which regulates the endocrine function of the thyroid gland.

This screening tests for a deficiency of thyroid hormone and is included in the Executive 13 blood work.

Prostate Cancer Screening

PSA: It is recommended that men 45 years of age and older, have a PSA test done annually. The PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) blood test is an important tool in helping to detect prostate cancer. This test provides the same clinical results as a local medical laboratory without the expense and inconvenience of physician’s appointments and lab fees. The test is performed by finger stick and a blood sample is applied to a collection card. The card is then sent via mail and reviewed by a physician. Results are mailed to the patient, and a Bio Safe Nurse will contact you if abnormal values are detected. The test is included in the Executive 13 blood work.

Colon Cancer Screening

E Z Detect: Colon (Colorectal) Cancer often ranks as the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States. With more than a ninety percent cure rate if detected early enough, Colon Cancer is preventable and treatable. Early detection through screening is the key.

E Z Detect is a convenient, “throw-in-the-bowl” at home test, providing early detection of bowel troubles such as ulcers, hemorrhoids, colorectal cancer, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, or fissures.

Each kit contains five pads, a positive control packet, instructions, and a postcard to send to your doctor. Results will appear within two minutes.

Body Composition

Tanita Scale: There is growing evidence that links body composition to health risks and the development of certain diseases. This analysis includes a number of measurements providing an in-depth look at your body composition.

This test includes the measurement of Body Weight, Body Fat %, Fat mass (in lbs.), Fat Free Mass (in lbs.), Body Mass Index (BMI), Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), and Estimated Hydration Level.

Health Risk Assessment

The Wellness Express Health Risk Assessment is designed to help individuals identify areas in their lifestyle where behavior changes need to be made to reduce risk factors for disease, disability and death.

Individuals are asked a series of questions. Topics may include: Personal & General Medical Data, Smoking Habits, Emotional Status, Exercise Activity, and Health & Nutrition. A report then provides positive & negative areas of a person’s lifestyle, general warnings, and suggestions for reducing the individual’s risk level.

Nurse Consultation

We have a registered nurse present to discuss screening results on an individual basis. Should further testing be recommended, we will refer the patient to their own physician.
