My son had to get a spirometry as a remedial by DoDMERB due to a history of childhood asthma and a positive TB test with a lung nodule when he was younger. The physician said he did fine. However, DoDMERB is now listing him as DQ'd and says "D241.30 Asthma/reactive airway disease/exercise induced bronchospasm after age 13" We called them and supposedly the spirometry test came back with a value of FEV1/FVC=74% pre-airway dilation which "does not meet medical standards" according to a note in his DoDMERB file. According to the technician we spoke with it is this result that the DQ is based on and not his actual history which is clear with his doctor discontinuing ALL treatment for any asthma concerns by age 12 and a full TB clearance. My son can run a 5:09 mile, I don't think he could do that with active airway issues. I know this is a bit technical, but does anyone know what IS the actual requirement for this measurement to meet medical standards? Would it help to get another spirometry from our own doctor and forward those results? I'd hate to see him lose his dream over a test result when what it is supposedly measuring is truly not an issue for him. Thanks for any help.
