Pulmonary Disorder Claims

The list of severe pulmonary disorders is long. It includes: chronic bronchitis, asthma, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), tuberculosis, asbestosis and so forth.

The disability level or rating of these pulmonary disorders is often measured by the FEV1/FVC ratio, also called Tiffeneau index, is a calculated ratio used in the diagnosis of obstructive and restrictive lung disease. It represents the volume of air exhaled in the first second. Another test called diffusion capacity of the lung is a measure of how well oxygen and carbon dioxide are transferred (diffused) between the lungs and the blood.

If you are a veteran of the US Armed Forces and you have suffered from a pulmonary disorder or damage to your lungs from your service in the military, contact an attorney at the Veterans Law Group at 888-811-0523.
