Preliminary questions [35502]

7334

the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred after the end of the veteran's last period of VEA service.

7335

the condition under consideration permanently worsened.

35518

the veteran has inhaled respirable asbestos fibres at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, dislodged, disturbed, cut or drilled.

35515the veteran has established the causal connection between inhaling respirable asbestos fibres before the asbestosis worsened and VEA service for the clinical worsening of asbestosis.

35516the veteran has established the causal connection between inhaling respirable asbestos fibres before the asbestosis worsened and operational service for the clinical worsening of asbestosis.

or

35517the veteran has established the causal connection between inhaling respirable asbestos fibres before the asbestosis worsened and eligible service for the clinical worsening of asbestosis.

Clinical worsening and operational service [35516]

35519

the veteran has inhaled respirable asbestos fibres at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, dislodged, disturbed, cut or drilled for a cumulative period of at least 1000 hours.

35521

the veteran inhaled respirable asbestos fibres at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, dislodged, disturbed, cut or drilled for a cumulative period of at least 1000 hours within the two years immediately before the clinical worsening of asbestosis.

35525

the clinical onset of the asbestosis occurred before the veteran inhaled respirable asbestos fibres at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, dislodged, disturbed, cut or drilled for a cumulative period of at least 1000 hours within the two years immediately before the clinical worsening of asbestosis.

35523

the veteran's inhalation of respirable asbestos fibres on operational service made a material contribution to the inhalation required by the Statement of Principles for the clinical worsening of asbestosis.

Clinical worsening and eligible service [35517]

35520

35526

the clinical onset of the asbestosis occurred before the veteran inhaled respirable asbestos fibres at the time material containing asbestos fibres was being applied, removed, dislodged, disturbed, cut or drilled for a cumulative period of at least 1500 hours within the two years immediately before the clinical worsening of asbestosis.

35524

the veteran's inhalation of respirable asbestos fibres on eligible service made a material contribution to the inhalation required by the Statement of Principles for the clinical worsening of asbestosis.
