If you mean electrocardiograph from 1971-

it would most likely not reflect his present graph results-

But then again it might reflect something in the past that you need.?

I am not a doctor and only was able to figure out my husband's ECGs.

There might well be notations right at the top or a narrative in his med recs.

If an ECHO was done, there should be a report there that is much easier for a Layperson to understand.

When I used the results of Rod's ECGs and ECHO in my FTCA claim against the gov, I had obtained lots of cardiology books from the Corning library and also bought a Nursing medical text book, which is outdated now. This was before the internet had so much medical info.

Many VAMCs have medical libraries-they might actually let you use their library for information-but the internet should help you on this.

One question- why haven't you asked a doctor to interpret it?

In my case, Rods ECG was definitely interpreted right, they just forgot to tell the patient he had significant heart disease and then they didnt have to treat it.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
