Our First Responder Focused Line is committed to providing care that is tailored to meet the specific needs of first responders, county, municipal, and administrative workers. Through our First Responder Program, frontline workers receive comprehensive and extensive testing so they can be at their healthiest when serving our communities.
Screenings available to first responders!
Firefighters, Police Officers, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel, Educators, and Government Employees.
A range of tests and screenings are offered to address the specific health issues faced by first responders and front-line workers. These tests aim to detect and manage cardiovascular conditions that may be prevalent in this population due to the physical and psychological demands of their work.
Measures the performance of the heart during physical activity, assessing its response to exertion. These tests involve monitoring the heart’s electrical activity, blood pressure, and oxygen levels while the patient undergoes controlled exercise. By increasing the heart’s workload, stress tests help detect underlying cardiovascular conditions such as coronary artery disease or abnormal heart rhythms. They provide valuable insights into the heart’s overall function, identifying any limitations or abnormalities that may not be apparent at rest.
A non-invasive procedure to assess the heart’s structure and function during physical activity. It provides valuable information about the heart’s ability to handle stress and determines if there are any abnormalities or limitations in its performance. By monitoring the heart’s response to exercise, stress tests can help diagnose conditions such as coronary artery disease, heart valve problems, or heart muscle disorders.
A non-invasive procedure that monitors brain and body activity during rest, providing valuable insights into sleep patterns and potential sleep disorders. This test involves using sensors placed on the body to record brain waves, eye movements, muscle activity, heart rate, and breathing patterns throughout the night. By analyzing the collected data, medical professionals can evaluate the quality and stages of sleep, identify disruptions or abnormalities, and diagnose conditions such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, or insomnia.
Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs) are diagnostic tests used to evaluate the functioning of the lungs, specifically measuring the air capacity during inhalation and exhalation. These tests provide valuable information about lung health and can help diagnose and monitor respiratory conditions. During PFTs, individuals may be asked to breathe in specific patterns, use a mouthpiece, or wear a nose clip to ensure accurate measurements of lung function.
Involves the analysis of various properties of the blood to assess overall health and screen for diseases and conditions. These tests can help identify specific diseases, monitor organ function, evaluate nutritional status, and detect metabolic imbalances. For example, blood glucose levels can be measured to assess diabetes risk or management, while cholesterol levels can indicate cardiovascular health.
Ankle Brachial Index/Pulse Volume Recording- a non-invasive vascular test that measures the flow of blood in the arms and legs using ultrasound technology. These tests provide valuable information about the circulation and blood pressure in the extremities. By comparing the blood pressure at the ankle to that of the arm, the ABI helps assess the presence of peripheral artery disease (PAD) or blockages in the arteries supplying the legs. PVR, on the other hand, measures the changes in volume and waveform of blood flow in response to muscle activity, offering additional insights into vascular health.
Is a diagnostic test that involves examining the urine to detect and assess a variety of diseases and health conditions. It is a common and valuable tool used by healthcare professionals to gather information about an individual’s urinary system and overall health. During a urinalysis, a urine sample is collected from the patient and analyzed in a laboratory. The sample can provide insights into various aspects of health, including kidney function, urinary tract infections, metabolic disorders, and other systemic conditions.
Is a commonly used medical test that measures and records the electrical activity of the heart. It provides valuable information about the strength, rhythm, timing, and speed of the heartbeat, as well as the electrical currents running through the heart muscle. The recorded ECG waveform represents the electrical impulses that cause the heart to contract and pump blood. The different components of the ECG waveform provide important information about the heart’s health and function.
is a medical imaging technique that uses X-rays to create images of the inside of your body. It is a commonly used diagnostic tool that can provide valuable information about your heart and lungs. In cardiology, radiography can be particularly useful for assessing the size, shape, and positioning of your heart and lungs. It can help in the diagnosis and evaluation of various heart conditions.
