Hi guys, I hope somebody can help. I've applied to join the RN as X(SM) Officer and have so far completed endless forms (including DV form), Psychometric tests & Sift Interview. I had my medical at the beginning of March and everything was absolutely fine except for my peak flow reading. I was suffering from the tail-end of a cold on the day, but even still my reading was little over 400 L/min. The Medical Officer did as was expected and sent me away to keep a peak flow diary for a month, which I have been doing and I go back for a review a week on Tuesday. I did suffer from Asthma as a child, up until I was about 6 or 7, but nothing since. I've not smoked a cigarette in my life and I keep myself fit. I'm 24 years old, Caucasian, 182cm tall, and weigh 78kg. Yet my average reading is only 520 L/min and my highest reading only 550. According to the chart on their website http://www.peakflow.com/top_nav/normal_values/index.html I should be getting readings of around 620L/min. The website does state: "In men, readings up to 100 L/min lower than predicted are within normal limits. For women, the equivalent figure is 85 L/min. Values are derived from Caucasian populations." My question is whether the Medical Officers take this into consideration when assessing whether you are fit to pass or not? If they do then I am still within NORMAL limits which is great. If not, then it's Game Over. I've searched both RR and external sites for an answer but with no luck. I am hoping someone on here will know the answer and give me good news! Thanks in advance.
