  • Asthma as a DQ?

    Does having asthma dq you from any of the hiring process?

    it depends how severe it is. as long as you can run w/o any problems it should be ok, esp sprinting. when you have your med, the doc will make the determination. have you taking a physical before? remember breathing into that tube as hard as you can? i believe it measures lung capacity. you might also have a stress test on the treadmill and being hooked up to machines. but your asthma should only be an issue during your medical and not your background process...

      just control your breating and have your inhaler with you. i have asthma and was able to complete the 1.5 mile run.. i was winded by the end.. but with some water, medication, and time to relax my lungs i was alright after an hour or so. during the medical the dr. wasn't worried... i told him what i was on and how often i have to take it.. and it was fine.

        Asthma is not an automatic DQ. It's a matter of severity. My wife had asthma, and she still passed the local police and FBI physical fitness exams.
