I can't interpret this Pulmonary Function test but am sure others here are familiar with them.

Did the C & P examiner state that this condition was 'more then likely' due to your service in the C & P results?

I was medically discharged in 1990 at a 10% rating service connected for asthma. I have tried to get the rating increase twice. Once in 2002 and this current situation. All of my medical records state that I have COPD. This is stated by a pulmonary doctor as well as a Radiologist MD. It was denied the first time because they said I continued to smoke and that I wasn't taking my meds both of which are false. I have never smoked and my medical records confirm that. I have also taken at least 3 up to 5 which I am currently taking for this condition. I never got the denial letter etc. but found them when my mother died going through her things recently. I was working and traveling a lot and didn't follow through at that time. Grant a higher rating back to that time. I believe given the facts in my service record I should have been at 30 % at my discharge date. I also have sleep apnea and am Bipolar. I was diagnosed several years after discharge. I appreciate you.

You have moderate COPD. Google 38cfr4.97 for information on how the VA will rate your test results.

I have similar results from my pulmonary test C&P and was rated at 30 %. Also you can go to google and type in "how to interpret pulmonary test results" and get a lot of information on COPD and test results.

Good luck with you claim.
