Other Screenings

Flu Shots: Be proactive and schedule onsite flu shots for your employees.

Hearing Awareness: Using a pure tone audiometer, this screening tests how well an individual hears various high and low frequencies.

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c): The HbA1c test measures the total amount of hemoglobin A1c in your blood. Comparing the results of your initial HbA1c test to the results of subsequent tests can determine if you are properly managing your diabetes.

Hi-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (CRP): Inflammation (swelling) of the arteries has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial disease. The body produces CRP during the general process of inflammation.

Lung Function: Lung function is screened by having the participant blow into a small, hand-held spirometer. This screening is ideal for encouraging participants to quit smoking and/or decrease exposure to other pollutants, to increase exercise, and to appropriately manage existing lung conditions, such as asthma and allergies.

Nicotine (Cotinine): Our two options for nicotine testing (saliva or blood) detect cotinine, which is the principle metabolite of nicotine. Testing via saliva yields a result within 10 minutes. Blood samples collected via a fingerstick are sent to a lab for processing with results available within 48 hours.

Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA): The PSA test measures a chemical substance produced by the prostate gland. Certain conditions of the prostate may raise the level of PSA in the blood and, while elevated levels of PSA are not harmful, they can be an important signal of possible prostate disease.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): TSH is a laboratory analysis that measures a chemical substance in the blood called thyroid stimulating hormone. This test will help you and your health care provider identify and/or monitor an underactive or overactive thyroid.

Visual Acuity: Using a Titmus machine, a visual acuity screen is conducted to see how well individuals see both near and far. A glaucoma screen can also be done to check for early signs of this blinding disease.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to many common and serious diseases including some cancers, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.
