Reasons for a Respiratory Examination

in Examination

A respiratory examination is normally conducted during a routine physical examination. In this case a basic respiratory examination would be done to ensure that a person is able to breathe normally and without difficulty. In most cases this entails listening to your lungs with a stethoscope and possibly having you breathe into a medical device.

A general physical examination is normally done once a year, or at the beginning of school. They can also be required before beginning a sport, or before beginning a new job. At these times a general respiratory examination would be included in the physical exam. However, there are instances when a more complete respiratory examination could be required.

If you are applying for a job where you are required to wear a respirator as part of the safety equipment then you will have to have a complete respiratory examination to ensure that you are healthy enough to wear one without danger. You will also have to have yearly check-ups and complete OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) questionnaires.

This process can involve loss of time for employers and the expense of providing the respiratory examinations needed to their employees. However, employers are aware of the necessity of providing proper safety screening for all their employees who may be exposed to hazardous airborne particles during their assigned work. By following all OSHA requirements they can ensure that there is little or no risk to the health of their employees.

With better security features incorporated into the World Wide Web or the Internet it has become possible for part of this process to be completed online. This decreases the loss of time away from the job while still ensuring that OSHA regulations are followed. Employer Health Services, LLC has created a respiratory health survey that satisfies the OSHA questionnaire requirements. This survey was created by board-certified doctors to obtain ongoing information about the respiratory health of employees.

Use of this respiratory health survey allows employers to receive reports faster and involves less medical examinations for employees. The survey can be completed in about half an hour and can be taken on the premises so employees do not have to worry about going into a medical office to complete a form. This makes it a quick, confidential, and convenient method of completing the required OSHA questionnaire. The reports generated by this survey also give the employer vital information about the use of respirators by their employees which allows them to ensure that the health of their employees is being protected adequately.
