Lung Volumes and Capacities

  1. end of quiet expiration where lungs contain 2200 ml of air
    function residual capacity (FRC)
  2. during normal expiration and inspiration how much air is expired and inspired?
    500 ml
  3. is 3000 ml of air and requires maximum contraction of the respiratory muscles
    inspiratory reserve volume (IRV)
  4. maximum volume of inspired air

    equation?
    inspiratory capacity

    IRV + TV= 3000 + 500= 3500 mL
  5. maximum volume of air that the lungs can hold = 5700 ml
    total lung capacity (TLC)
  6. extra volume actively expired: maximum contraction of expiratory muscles; 1000 ml
    expiratory reserve volume (ERV)
  7. maximum volume of air that can be moved out during a single breath after maximum inspiration (total amount of exchangeable air); 4500 ml

    equation?
    vital capacity

    VC= TV+ IRV+ ERV
