Blood Test for Cholesterol - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: If you are watching this video, your healthcare provider has asked you or someone to get a blood test to measure your cholesterol levels. The National Institutes of Health cholesterol treatment guidelines recommend you have a blood test every five years if you are 20 years or older. The test, called a fasting lipoprotein profile, measures your levels of total cholesterol, LDL, also known as bad cholesterol, HDL, also known as good cholesterol, and a type of fat in your blood called triglycerides. During this test, a blood sample will be taken after you have not eaten for 9 to 12 hours. Fasting is important to ensure accurate results for this test. The total cholesterol goal should be less than 200 milligrams per deciliter. For most people, an ideal HDL, or good cholesterol, should be 60 or higher. An ideal LDL, or bad cholesterol, should be less than 100. And fasting triglycerides should be less than 150. If you have high blood cholesterol levels, you have a greater risk of heart disease. In heart disease, blood vessels called coronary arteries become narrowed or blocked by a waxy substance containing cholesterol called plaque. Over time, plaque may reduce or block the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle and cause a heart attack. There are many known risk factors for heart disease. Risk factors you can control include high blood cholesterol, and triglycerides, high blood pressure, diabetes, pre-diabetes, being overweight or obese, smoking, lack of physical activity, an unhealthy diet, and stress. Risk factors you can't control include age, gender, and having a family history of heart disease. If you already have heart disease and multiple or severe risk factors, your doctor may lower your LDL goal to less than 70. Your specific goals may vary depending on your health situation. Ask your doctor what your lipid goals should be.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
