The essential screening is a cost-effective way to identify and treat potential health problems before they develop or worsen. It provides a range of physical and blood tests in conjunction with the health and lifestyle questionnaire, which will help identify a range of specific health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic lower respiratory disease, and cancer.
Spirometry is also included, which is a test to measure how well the lungs are functioning. Spirometry is used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other conditions that effect how well a person is able to breathe. Of the three high risk behaviors that lead to 50% of deaths, smoking is likely to cause chronic lower respiratory disease. Measuring lung function through spirometry ensures early intervention for the best participant outcome.
This screening will give the participant a good overview of their general health. If any of the tests are outside the normal range, recommendations will be made accordingly.
