Do you have 10-20 minutes that could save your life?
Well the cardiovascular screenings that Premier Corporate Wellness provides could help do just that!
It is a easy 10-20 minute preventive screenings that looks directly at the major arteries for levels of plaque build up, hardening, and narrowing of the arteries that could potentially lead to a stroke, heart attack, or heart disease. In order to complete the screenings we provide a Certified Ultrasound Technician to come onsite and scan the employees major arteries with an ultrasound probe and machine. The screenings are noninvasive and could bring peace of mind to your employees because it will provide them with direct images to help convey to them what damage if any has been done within their arteries.
One out of every 2 persons in the United States dies from heart disease and 76% of everyone will have heart disease sometime in their life. This could equal to more than half the people that you may know or encounter in your life.
Who's At Risk?
Plaque can build up in the arteries for many different reasons including (but not limited too):
stress, hormonal imbalances (pregnancy), obesity, blood disorder, past history, age, surgery, immobility, smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other life style choices could lead to many being at risk.
Why is this Beneficial?
Mostly importantly this can help prevent the #1 killer among Americans. The cardiovascular screenings are not normally provided in an annual exam therefore provide more in depth information and images instead of just cholesterol numbers. The screenings can help with early detection of narrowed arteries that could enable early treatment to improve blood flow and decrease risk of stroke and heart disease. Since most cases of heart disease and blocked arteries are asymptomatic the screenings can help with early detection.
Premier Corporate Wellness provides a team of certified professionals to conduct, read and review the screenings. Including a Certified Ultrasound Technician, Ceritfied Radiologist, and a Medical Doctor. Most companies who provide similar services only provide an ultrasound technician.
What is the Cost?
Pricing for the ultrasound services vary but most equal no out of pocket expense to the employees but please call for details.
