I have Atrial Fibrillation. I was hospitalized for this in 1992 at 2003. Have not had many eposides since. Currently take no medication for this. Is it safe to wear a respirator at work? My doctors gave conflicting responses. I feel that it is dangerous. A Reasonable Accommodation of avoiding the respirator work would not be an undue hardship for the company and I could still perform 90% of my job duties.
