Health Screenings

Basic Screenings

Body Mass Index (BMI):
The BMI is a tool to identify risks for certain health conditions and is calculated using measured height and weight specifics.
Blood Pressure/Pulse Rate:
Our nurses will perform blood pressure screenings by using a manual cuff and will review recommended guidelines with your employees.
Blood Oxygen Level:
Our non-invasive finger device measures blood oxygen level.
A blood glucose monitor is used to conduct diabetes screenings. The A1C measures average blood sugar for the past 2-3 months through a finger-stick.
Lung Assessment:
An instrument is used to measure overall airway function.

Fitness Screenings

A sit-and-reach box measures flexibility of lower back, hamstrings, and shoulders. Results are compared against age and gender guidelines.
Step Test:
Cardiovascular endurance is measured after conducting a three-minute step test. Results are compared to national averages.
Body Composition:
The Omron Bodylogic Body Fat Analyzer quickly calculates body fat percentage and BMI measurements.
Push-up Test:
The push-up test is a basic fitness test to assess upper body fitness.

Cholesterol Test
This finger-stick test provides total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol), triglycerides and the ratio of the total cholesterol to HDL and includes a cardiac risk assessment. This test requires a 10-12 hour fast and participants will know results within 7 minutes. Appointment times are recommended.
Prostate Specific Antigen
This screening is recommended for males age 40+ and requires a blood draw. Results will be mailed to participants.
Bone Density/Osteoporosis
Using the Sahara Density machine to conduct bone density testing, an ultrasound of the heel is taken to measure bone mineral density (BMD). The machine calculates a T-Score, which indicates the participant’s risk for osteoporosis.
Flu Vaccine
During flu season, our nurses will provide on-site flu vaccination shots in conjunction with your health fair, or as a separate event.

Hands-only CPR

Learn Hands-only Bystander CPR

According the the American Red Cross, one quarter of Americans say they have been in a situation where someone needed CPR. If you were one of them, would you know what to do?

Parkview Mobile Nurses have made it their mission to ensure everyone in our community knows Hands-only CPR. According to the American Heart Association, most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public place die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone at the scene.

Health Fair Success Stories

Leopoldo Lopez, Billet Checker at EVRAZ for 36 years

mobile nurse testimonial 1

"The health risks identified at the Parkview Medical Center sponsored health fair is what prompted me to make an appointment to see my family doctor. Parkview Mobile Nurses made me aware of my blood pressure, they saved my life."

John Zane, San Isabel Electric for 40 yearsMobile Nurse Testimonial 2

"I went to the Parkview Health Fair in December 2006 and had the prostate specific antigen test. Later that month, I was notified by a phone call from a Parkview Mobile Nurse that my PSA screening result was out of range. My wife Rita and I discussed the results and decided I needed to follow up with an urologist for further testing. The results of the biopsy was stage 6 cancer. I immediately began treatment and today I am cancer free. I knew the health fair was a good thing because most men don't go to the doctor. The health fair saved my life as I would have been dead. I encourage all my co-workers to do the health screenings."

Candelario Estrada, Pueblo Board of Water Works

"My name is Candelario Estrada, I am 33 years old and currently employed at the Pueblo Board of Water Works. In 2012, I attended an annual health fair provided by my employer and orchestrated by Parkview Mobile Nurses. Here I had to face a harsh reality of being morbidly obese and borderline diabetic. I was also confronted with a number of unhealthy statistics including my cholesterol level. With all the information I was furnished, it motivated me to make a lifestyle change. In 2013, I had the honor to be recognized as the winner of the weight challenge of our wellness program at the Pueblo Board of Water Works. From the start of my weight loss journey, I have lost a total of 65 pounds and turned my unhealthy physical statistics back it to the normal range. This helped me personally and professionally, which in turn has helped me become a better husband, father and employee. I could not have made this lifestyle change without the continuing education and awareness provided by Parkview Mobile Nurses and the wellness fair."
