A couple weeks ago we found out my daughter was medically DQ'd in the DoDMERB process. Since she is a 4 year AROTC recipient, it automatically goes to a waiver application. The basis for her DQ is as follows: D241.30 Asthma/reactive airway disease/exercise induced bronchospasm after age 13 D101.22 Current or history of premature atrial or ventricular contractions Some background - she is an endurance athlete (track and cross country) and has been her school's top distance runner for her junior and senior years. She pretty much crushed the PT test for her ROTC application doing 66 pushups/min and 42 situps/min and her PR in the mile is 5:28 and will most likely improve as the track season progresses. However, what triggered the DQs were a couple things in her medical records that never amounted to anything. While in middle school, she was prescribed an inhaler as a precautionary measure after having some breathing difficulty while running that ended up just being the combination of an illness coupled with intense exercise at practice. She used the inhaler a couple times and then never again as she didn't have asthma and was never diagnosed with it. The premature ventricular contractions (PVC) issue was something that came up at a regular physical when the doctor noted a slight blip in her heartbeat. As a followup, the doctor had her undergo a stress test with a cardiologist. They put her on a treadmill while monitoring her heart and had to prematurely stop the test because she had maxed out the speed and incline without being able to get her heartrate maxed out. They did not find anything objectionable in anything they measured during that test and she was not restricted in any way or prescribed with any treatment. When I researched this issue, I found that it is very common for endurance athletes to exhibit PVCs. So, in reality, the two conditions that resulted in her DQ are really non-issues but of course it seems to be totally out of our control as some of the mitigating circumstances don't really show up in her records. I did write a letter to her physician asking that he send a letter to her DoDMERB file to clarify these issues but I don't know if the doctor has followed up on that as of yet. I am confident that she would submit to (and pass) any stress test the Army could dream up but thus far there have been no requests for additional testing or any information whatsoever. She did speak with the ROO at her school but that didn't yield much of anything. The school she ultimately attends hinges upon the outcome of her waiver as does her dream to serve in the Army. So, I'm wondering what her chances are that this ends up in her favor and secondly, if there is anything else she should be doing at this time to bolster and/or expedite her case.
