Bio Metric Screening


 

Bio Metric Screening Q & A

With advancement in every sector, Family Urgent Care has taken a step forward in maintaining the health records of our patients. The biometric screening has become a significant way of measuring down the important readings of your body. This way is safer and easier as well!

The health factors we measure!

The basic health factors which can be easily measured are mentioned below:

  • The percentage of body fat in the body.
  • BMI – Body Mass Index.
  • Blood pressure.
  • Heart Rate.
  • Glucose levels.
  • Cholesterol level.
  • Cotinine.
  • Prostate-specific antigen-upon request.

Many screenings other than these are performed. These tests must be performed every 5 years. Not only we say this but it is suggested by your doctors as well. Family Urgent Care sends the proper tips and recommendations if any of these are found disturbed I your body, depending upon your reports.

Difference between Bio Metric Screening and Wellness Exams?

Wellness exams are conducted to gather the report about the functioning of your organs while on the other hand, biometric screening totally depends upon the stability of cholesterol, blood pressure, heart rate and factors like these which are known to be ‘risk factors’.
