Hi all, i have just heard some horrible news, well it is to me anyway! In a couple of years time the only thing i want to do is to acheive being a paramedic. Its my whole dream and all my friends and family are pushing me to become it, and get me there to make them proud. Well do you think that this is right? I do and dont agree with it!
To be a paramedic you must go through a series of test including Lung Function tests, and you have to get average or above results. Well we all know that roughly 99% of Asthmatics have a lower Lung Function! Well now it gets to the good part!
You have to go a year without having your inhalers and meds. I guess this will include, Becotide, Serevent, Ventolin. Seretide, Pred. ect and i think that this is toatlly impossible and outragious, how can a 'real' asthmatic go without inhalers, its complete health risk, well if the NHS want to spend more money on Nebs and doctors time then go ahead.
Does anybody have any information about this, its a real worry for me!
