# 4C-Lung VOL and CAPACITY Flashcards

What is the measurement of lung volume and capacity?

SpiroMetry

What s a method of encouraging voluntary deep breathing by providing visual feedback about inspiratory volume?

Incentive Spirometry

What is the amount of air that moves into and out of the airways with each inspiration and expiration during normal quiet breathing?

Tidal Volume (TV)

What is the total volume of air taken in by the body during 1 minute?

Minute Ventilation (MVe)

What is the formula for finding Minute Ventilation?

MV=TV x Respiratory Rate

What is the portion of the tidal volume that remains in the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and terminal bronchioles?

Anatomical Dead Space (ADS)

What is the total volume of air that reaches the sites of gas exchange during 1 minute?

Alveolar Ventilation (AVe)

What is the formula for finding AVe?

AVe=(TV-ADS) x RR

What is the amount of air you can inspire above your normal tidal volume?

Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV)

What is the amount of air you can expire above your normal tidal volume?

Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV)

What is the amount of air that remains in the respiratory system after a forced expiration?

Residual Volume (RV)

What is the sum of the residual volume and expiratory reserve volume?

Funtional Residual Capasity (FRC)

What is the sum of the tidal volume and IRV?

Inspiratory Capasity (IC)

What is the sum of tidal volume, IRV and ERV?

Vital Capasity
