Conducting an Immigration Medical Examination.


In conducting a Canadian immigration medical examination, the DMP performing the examination will undertake the some important following activities.

• Provide a routine appointment for Canadian IMEs
• Verify that the person presenting for examination is the person pictured in Medical Report and ensure that the applicant, or parent/guardian, completes and signs Medical Report
• Carefully review and provide details on the applicant's responses to the questions regarding functional inquiry in Medical Report: Section B (IMM 5419).
• Perform a comprehensive physical and mental examination.

• Provide appropriate age-defined laboratory investigations /Laboratory Requisition
a. urinalysis (protein, glucose and blood by dipstick—if blood positive, then microscopic report required) for applicants five years and over;
b. serological test for syphilis for applicants 15 years and over.

• HIV testing for applicants 15 years of age and over, as well as for those children who have received blood or blood products, have a known HIV-positive mother, or have an identified risk. An ELISA HIV screening test should be done forHIV 1 ,2
Serology is a blood test often done to identify antibodies in the patient's blood serum and confirm the presence of infection. Syphilis is one of the infectious diseases that can be transmitted sexually, although it can also be transmitted through blood transfusion and from infected mother to fetus. The organism involved is the Treponema pallidum, which can penetrate broken skin and mucous membranes that come in contact with it. When the organism enters the body, the immune system often releases specific antibodies into the blood to fight off the infection. Syphilis serology, therefore is a diagnostic test that can detect the presence of antibodies against syphilis in a person suspected of having the disease.

Patients with syphilis usually develop lesions in the genital tract, which is often followed by non-specific symptoms like fever, headache, rashes, and joint pains. Most of these patients have a history of sexual intercourse. When doctors suspect a syphilis infection in patients, they may request a syphilis serology test to help in the diagnosis. An adequate amount of blood is then extracted from the patient's arm vein and processed in the laboratory for a syphilis serology test.

o These reports should be complete and contain a thorough clinical review, discussion and interpretation of clinical findings.

o It is the DMP's responsibility to select specialists and consultants who are able and willing to provide complete reports.

Medical Exam Tips

Some simple Medical Exam Tips to help you get the best results
(Note. Consult your doctor before following the tips)

Be in reasonably good physical condition. If you have high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol or if you are required to undergo for a surgery let these things fixed and under control prior to exam.
Be prepared to answer all questions honestly to the best of your knowledge. Honesty is both asked for and appreciated
Don't drink any alcohol at least 72 hours before the exam.
Practice a healthy diet the week prior to your medical exam. Minimize the use of salt and avoid excess fatty, greasy, heavy or generally unhealthy foods before the exam
Limit intake of caffeine ,black tea.
Avoid to use pain killers unnecessary.(ask your doctor)
Avoid strenuous activities including jogging, weight lifting or swimming.
Do not smoke or chew tobacco.
Get a good night's sleep.
Consider scheduling your exam in the morning, preferably upon waking, your body is most relaxed in the morning.
Be at DMP office about 30 minutes early
Make sure that you are clean and well-groomed for the physical exam. It can make it more difficult for a doctor to accurately check you out if you are much less than clean. For example, the condition of your fingernails can tell a doctor something about your bone health, but it can be hard to tell if your nails are mistreated and dirty
Spend a few days before your exam as stress-free as possible. Try to take it easy and to relax.. Take the time while waiting at the doctor's office to calm yourself and distress. Take a few deep breaths, chew gum, read, anything to help you relax. You're likely to have a blood pressure and heart rate that is closer to normal.
Great Information.......+1 for u

Be prepared to answer all questions honestly to the best of your knowledge.Fortunately, some of these disabilities are preventable through appropriate prenatal health care and healthy prenatal lifestyle choices.
You may be required the details including the specific diagnosis, with details of the type and duration of treatment .
