I've some numbers stored as txt and need to handle nulls while also doing a calculation.

AND CAST(ISNULL(MED_PVAR1_DPD,'0') AS INT) < 3.05

despite my thinking this might work the above gives me :
"Conversion failed when converting the varchar value '3.05' to data type int."

My quick guess would be that casting a varchar that contains a decimal point to an integer is not allowed. Have you tried casting it to a decimal?
