1

Amount of air inspired or expired in routine breathing:

Tidal volume

about 500 ml

2

Total lung volume is usually about?

4000 mL

3

Total lung capacity is about?

7000 mL

4

Maximum volume of air that can be expired after maximum inspiration?

Vital capacity

about 6000 mL

5

Amount of air remaining in lungs after maximal expiration?

residual volume

6

Great chart on page....

5 in lecture PPT

7

How to calculate alveolar ventilation?

volume of CO2 in exhaled air divided by fraction conc of CO2 in expired air (PCO2?)

PCO2 is inversely proportional to alveolar ventilation

ie: breath faster --> PCO2 goes down?

8

You are going to need to review this powerpoint!

Poor flashcard lecture

9

Amount of air in the lungs after a normal breath?

Functional residual capacity
