    Default medical exam.

    I am curious what should I expect from the medical exam. How intensive? Will there be any surprises. Thanks for all the answers

    I'm sure it varies by dept....but the one I just took included:

    Normal physical exam
    Resting EKG
    Comprehensive vision test
    Comprehensive hearing test
    Blood drawn for testing
    Stress test (treadmill, 12 minutes regularly increasing speed and angle)
    Chest X-rays
    Lung capacity/respirator screening
    Drug screen
    Immunizations (if needed)

    Default stress test?

    I have never done this. just wondering what is the max speed and angle at 12 mins or is there a breakdown of how it goes?

    My test started at a normal walk...every 3 minutes the speed increased slightly and the incline went up slightly. When I ended, it was about as fast a walk as you can do without jogging. I was told specifically NOT to jog but to take long fast strides.

    It was no big deal....they just wanted to see how close you came to your recommended peak heart rate, while monitoring your EKG and BP regualrly during the test. Then after it was over, I was told immeidately to lie down and they continued to check heart rate, BP and EKG to see how fast my body recovered.
