Yes, a medical evaluation is required.

Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not a medical evaluation was

necessary for lab personnel wearing a Supplied-air respirator, from 
reading 29 CFR 1910.134 it looks like they would but I just wanted to
sure. This would pertain to someone working in a lab that put on a
fitting hood and have it hooked up to a hose that supplied ambient air
the user.
