Lifeline screenings

Baptist Health Paducah and Life Line Screening are partnering to find vascular disease and other conditions so they can be treated before they become life-threatening.

Non-invasive ultrasound can detect an enlargement of the abdominal aorta; find plaque in the neck’s carotid arteries, which can lead to stroke by obstructing blood flow to the brain or breaking off and flowing to the brain; and estimate bone density. Other screenings use EKG to detect heart arrhythmia, which can lead to stroke; and the Ankle-Brachial Index for lower extremity vascular disease, a risk factor for heart attack and stroke.  

Upcoming screenings dates and locations are available, by appointment only:

  • Sept. 8 – 9 a.m., First Baptist Church, Carterville, Ill.
  • Sept. 10 – 11 a.m., Pontotoc Community Center, Fulton
  • Oct. 8 – 11 a.m., Civic Center, Calvert City
  • Oct. 9 – 9 a.m., Caldwell County EMS, Princeton
  • Oct. 15 – 10 a.m., First Baptist Church, Harrisburg, Ill.
  • Oct. 22 – 11 a.m., New Bethel Baptist Church, Benton

Screenings are priced individually or in a package. Use code PBHP-001 for discounted prices at 877.237.1383 or Five screenings, plus a disease risk assessment, are $209 or the stroke and vascular package is $139.
