*** Define ERV ***
The additional amount of air that can be exhaled after quiet expiration.
*** Define VC ***
The amount of air in the lungs that can be exhaled after a maximal forced inspiration.
*** What is the Formula for Vital Capacity and how is it measured? ***
- VC = TV + IRV + ERV
- Measurement is the difference between forced inhalation and forced exhalation
*** How is Expiratory Reserve Volume measured? ***
Measurement is the difference between quiet exhalation & forced exhalation.
*** What is the formula to figure out TV when spirometer that is not sensitve enough to take a direct TV reading?
How is this performed ***
