Prepping for Your DOT Quest

Want to ensure your DOT physical journey is smooth? Here’s your checklist:

  1. Ditch the coffee and energy drinks.
  2. Rest up with a sound sleep.
  3. Remember, there’s a urine test on the horizon, so avoid visiting the restroom just before your appointment.
  4. Got concerns like high blood pressure, obesity, or snoring? Best to get those sorted before you embark on this path. For further questions, this web link is your guide.

What’s on the DOT Physical Map?

1. Eyes on the Road

Your vision matters. Ensure you’ve got at least a 20/40 acuity in both eyes, corrected or not. And let’s not forget about that 70” peripheral in the horizontal meridian.

2. Tuned to the Whispers

Your hearing’s up next. The aim? Catch a “forced whisper” from 5ft away, with or without hearing aids.

3. The Heartbeat of the Journey

Your blood pressure and pulse are vital markers. They give insights into potential high blood pressure and any irregular rhythms of the heart.

4. A Closer Look with Urinalysis

This test seeks signs of underlying conditions, like diabetes.

5. The Comprehensive Physical Exam

From your general appearance to your neurological functions, this physical is thorough. It’ll check your eyes, ears, heart, lungs, and much more. Whether it’s assessing any impaired limbs, spine issues, or even a hernia, this exam leaves no stone unturned.

A Reminder: Only a certified FMCSA medical examiner can conduct the DOT physical. The results? They rest upon the examiner, ensuring each driver is at their best when they hit the road.

So, gear up and let Dr. Reesor guide you through your DOT physical, setting the stage for your continued journey on the roads. Safe travels!
