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. Alright folks,

    I just completed my PJFT, I done the run in 8 mins 58 seconds so was pretty chuffed as I had to complete it in under 12 mins 48 seconds but when I was getting my blood pressure taken the fitness instructor said I had low blood pressure, 121/54.

    I passed my medical without any mention of this. Will this become an issue?

    cheers for any help.
  2. So long as the Navy doesn't start recruiting its Doctors from a pool of untrained gym queens with barely sufficient IQ to put weight-training mitts on the correct hand, you'll probably be fine.
  3. congrats on your run, angry doc should be able to answer your question more accurately. Good luck with the rest of your application
  4. Nothing wrong with that blood pressure.

    I presume they're moaning because the diastolic (bottom figure) is lower than normal, but that is more likely due to their technique or machine than you.

    This will not be an issue - don't worry about it.
  5. Cheers for all the replies.

    Yeah it was the bottom figure the gym instructor wasn't happy with!

    I was just a bit concerned as he noted it on the form so I thought it may be a problem later on in the recruitment process but I'll just forget about it.
