Great! You’re  scheduled for a paramedic exam so you can get the best rates on your new life policy!  Here are some life-insurance-medical-examtime-tested tips to help you ace the exam:

Be well rested-

  • Schedule exam in morning before your breakfast for a natural fast of 9-12 hours without food.
  • Do not drink anything but water before your exam.
  • Do not drink alcohol the night before
  • Make sure to take all medications- on schedule per doctors orders- NO need to hide blood pressure or cholesterol medications.
  • Do NOT perform a vigorous  exercise for at least 24 hours before the exam–
  • Do NOT take ANY type of Protein Supplements for at least 2 days before the exam
  • Of course, it goes without saying to be mindful that you will be tested for drugs that are not of prescription nature, as well as for tobacco- tobacco shows up at least 3 days since last use.
  • In addition, in the rare event that you need an EKG ( heartbeat test) make sure to remove all metallic jewelry.

Men Specific:  Please do not have “relations” or ejaculation for at least 24 hours before your exam –  This raises your PSA level and may provide a false reading.

Woman Specific:  Please do not schedule your exam near your monthly menstruation.  Doing so may cause you to flunk your urinalysis due to blood cells found in urine.

Most important -relax- and remember it is NORMAL for the examiner to take your blood pressure 3 times not just once.

Be well,
