Tidal volume
Volume inspired or expired per breath (increases during exercise)
1 of 11
Inspiratory reserve volume
Maximal volume inspired following end of resting inspiration (decreases during exercise)
2 of 11
Expiratory reserve volume
Maximal volume expired following end of resting expiration (decreases during exercise)
3 of 11
Residual volume
Volume of air remaining in the lungs at the end of maximal respiration (remians the same during exercise)
4 of 11
Inspiratory capacity
Maximum volume of air inspired from resting expiratory levels (increase during exercise)
5 of 11
Vital capacity
the maximum volume of air forcibly expired following maximum inspiration (slight decrease)
6 of 11
Total lung capacity
the volume of air that is in the lungs following maximal inspiration (slight decrease during exercise)
7 of 11
Minute ventilitation
the volume of air inspired or expired per minute (dramatic increase)
8 of 11
Partial pressure
pressure that is exerted by the individual gas when in a mixture of gases
9 of 11
2 sites of gaseous exhange
between the alveoli in the lungs and the surrounding blood capillaries and between the tissues/muscles and the surrounding blood capillaries
10 of 11
