Medical examination

A medical examination is a test or procedure designed to measure an individual's physical or mental impairments or health. Medical examinations include blood pressure screening, EKGs, testing for the presence of various diseases, and alcohol testing. Medical examinations do not include tests for the current illegal use of drugs, and physical agility and physical fitness tests that measure an applicant's or employee's ability to perform certain functions but not their physiological responses to performing them.
