Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am planning to hopefully join the RN as a chef when i have finished school but a couple months ago i was prescribed a Ventoline Evohaler for a nasty chest infection which was causing shortness of breath i have recently collected a second pump (other one ran out) Would this stop me joining the RN? Thank you (i am looking forward to joining )(if i can)

  2. It was for a horrid chest infection that was causing shortness of breath (i can breath normally now..) would that come under RN guidelines for asthma?
     
  3. I'm not a medical person, that's for the doc to decide.
     
  4. Oh yes sorry, thank you though!
     
  5. I had an inhaler for bronchitis before I had my medical, you may need to get proof from the Dr to say it wasn't for asthma and the treatment wasn't ongoing and they may also give you a 28 day peak flow diary.. But ultimately it comes down to who you see on the day.. Good luck x

    If an individual has a previous history of asthma and later gets a chest infection with an asthma-like wheeze, serious enough to require a trip to a GP, who in turn prescribes an asthma inhaler, it is difficult to claim it is unrelated.

    Asthma is a life treatening condition: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-isle-of-man-33805875
