PE - lung volumes and capacities

HideShow resource information
what is tidal volume ?
volume of air inspired / expired per breath
1 of 10
what is expiratory reverve volume
maximum volume of air expired following resting expiration
2 of 10
what is inspiratory reserve volume
maximum volume of air inspired following resting inspiration
3 of 10
what is residual volume
volume of air in the lungs at the end of maximal expiration
4 of 10
what is inspiratory capacity
maximum volume of air inspired from resting levels
5 of 10
what is vital capacity -- how is it measured -- how is it calculated
maximum volume of air forcibly expired following maximum inspiratio - measured using a peak flow meter - TV+IV+EV
6 of 10
what is total lung capacity -- how is it calculated
volume of air in the lungs following maximum inspiration - TV+IRV+ERV+RV
7 of 10
what is breathing rate
number of breathes per minuite
8 of 10
what is minuite ventillation
amount of air moved in and out of the lungs in one minuite (measured in millimeters per minuite (mm/min))
9 of 10
how in minuite ventillation calculated ?
breathing rate X total volume (litres) = minuite ventilation (litres)
