  1. After each one of these screenings we are told that some were sent to ER. I’d be curious to know how many of those turned out to have a problem and how many were just sent home. I don’t mean that cynically. I think that these screening are so important. I’m just wondering how to view that information

  2. It means that if 600 people showed up and they saved even one life and perhaps more- it was well worth the effort!
    Def take that over 6000 praying for a a refua or a case already too late to help…

  3. BP is the silent killer
    High blood glucose can be an indication of diabetes
    BMI is worthless cuz if youre obese you know it
    same for heart rate and o2 saturation, if you have low saturation you probably know it.
    they should check the a1c which is a warning sign for diabetes
