PHYSICALSD.O.T.PHYSICALS Pro Medical offers D.O.T. Physicals – Federal guidelines mandate that anyone applying for a CDL must pass the Department of Transportation physical exam. The purpose of this exam is to determine whether a potential driver is physically capable of driving safely at the present time as well as in the foreseeable future. Passing the exam successfully usually means you have 24 month before you need to do it again, although in some instances this period might be decreased in case that serious health issues could arise in the future. Come to Pro Medical to get your D.O.T. Physical today! FIT FOR DUTYFit for DutyEvaluations Pro Medical offers Fit for Duty Evaluations – These are evaluations performed to determine the capabilities of an individual upon return to work. Matching the job description against the returning individual’s function-ability determines whether they are fit to return to duty. In many cases, employees are returned for duty but are not physically ready. F.C.E.Functional CapacityEvaluation Pro Medical offers Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)– This is an all-encompassing evaluation to determine fully the ability of an individual to return to work after an extended period of medical leave. An FCE is required by insurers if applies for disability payments or a disability pension in the case of permanent disability. AUDIOGRAMSAudiograms Pro Medical Offers Audiogram Testing. An audiogram is a graph that shows the audible threshold for standardized frequencies as measured by an audiometer. The Y axis represents intensity measured in decibels and the X axis represents frequency measured in Hertz. The threshold of hearing is plotted relative to a standardised curve that represents ‘normal’ hearing, in dB. They are not the same as equal-loudness contours, which are a set of curves representing equal loudness at different levels, as well as at the threshold of hearing, in absolute terms measured in dB SPL (sound pressure level). Ideally the audiogram would show a straight line, but in practice everyone is slightly different, and small variations are considered normal. Larger variations, especially below the norm, may indicate hearing impairment which occurs to some extent with increasing age, but may be exacerbated by prolonged exposure to fairly high noise levels such as by living close to an airport or busy road, work related exposure to high noise, or brief exposure to very high sound levels such as gunshot, loud music or live event attendance in which the audience can reach deafening levels. DRUG & ALCOHOLDrug & AlcoholTesting Pro Medical Drug & Alcohol Testing – OSHA recognizes that impairment by drug or alcohol use can constitute an avoidable workplace hazard and that drug-free workplace programs can help improve worker safety and health and add value to American businesses. OSHA strongly supports comprehensive drug-free workforce programs, especially within certain workplace environments, such as those involving safety-sensitive duties like operating machinery. RESPIRATORY FITRespiratoryFit Test Pro Medical Offers Respiratory Fit Testing – Fit testing is done to check the mask size and model chosen fits the face. Although the respirator may look like it fits correctly, gaps can occur around the nose, chin or eyes. A fit test confirms that the mask fits properly and there is minimal air leakage between the face and mask. Fit Test performed in accordance with OSHA Regulations. PULMONARYPulmonaryFunction Tests Spirometry – (meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs), measuring lung function, specifically the measurement of the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used for generating pneumotachographs which are helpful in assessing conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and COPD.
