Screening day in a company

Glucose and cholesterol screening

On the day, Biron provides screening of the glucose and cholesterol capillary rate and arterial hypertension. The activity takes place with or without an appointment.  However, making appointment, at the rate of nine appointments per hour, reduces the waiting time for employees. During the appointment, the nurse will give you a quick reference card on which are listed the results of the tests. She gives advice on how to use appropriate brochures and suggests a medical consultation, if deemed necessary.

Screening of sleep disorders

During the day held in the form of kiosk or presentation, Biron offers information on the signs and symptoms associated with sleep apnea, information tools on various treatments and measures to be taken, as well as professional and continuous support.

It is important to note that more than 10% of the population suffers from sleep apnea, or more than 700,000 people in Québec. Also, more than 85% of the people are not diagnosed, since signs and symptoms overlap with other diseases such as depression, heart disease, hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Finally, sleep apnea disrupts the sleep and reduces the alertness during the day that can cause decreases in performance at work, accidents at work as well as road accidents.
