What is a Paramedical Exam?


A paramedical exam is questions about your medical history, alongwith blood pressure, height, weight, measurements, pulse and urine specimen. In some cases a blood/urine and/or an EKG will be performed. 

Where will the exam take place?


In the comfort of your home, your place of employment, or any other designated place of your choosing.

How can I get the best possible results for my exam?


            RELAX!
                            
  
                                Examiners are humans, too. 

  • Do not be stressed about an examiner coming to your home

  • Get a good nights sleep

  • If a blood specimen is required, fast according to your insurance instructions

  • If you are diabetic or pregnant, please check with your physician (fasting not required)

  • Blood pressure can be artificially raised by stress, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol and certain medications 

  • 24 hours prior to exam limit your salt intake, high cholesterol foods, strenuous activities such as working out, lifting weights and running


Do I need to have anything ready for the examiner?

                  Such a thoughtful question....

 The exam will go faster and smoother if you have:

  • Drivers License or acceptable form of photo ID

  • Name of your Primary Care physician, address and phone number

  • Name, address and phone number of any other physicians you see

  • Dates of last visit and reason for seeing your physician

  • List of all medications and doses, including any supplements you take

  • Drink a glass of water one hour prior to the exam for a urine specimen
