  1. Pulmonary ventilation
    medical term for breathing
  2. Pulmonary Functions test
    Used clinically to asses pulmonary function. The clinical technique is known as spirometry
  3. Lung volumes
    the nonoverlapping components of the total lung capacity
  4. Tidal Volume
    the volume of gas inspired or expired during each normal (unforced) ventilation cycle
  5. Inspiratory Reserve volume
    the maximum volume of gas that can be forcefully inhaled after a normal (tidal) inhalation
  6. Expiratory Reserve volume
    the maximum volume of gas that can be forcefully exhaled after a normal (tidal) exhalation
  7. Residual Volume
    the volume of gas remaining in the lungs after a maximum (forced) expiration
  8. Lung Capacities
    measurements that are the sum of 2 or more lung volumes
  9. Vital capacity
    the maximum volume of gas that can be forcefully exhaled after a maximum inhalation
  10. Total lung capacity
    the total volume of gas in the lungs after a maximum (forced) inhalation
  11. Inspiratory capacity
    the maximum volume of gas that can be inhaled after a normal (tidal) (unforced) exhalation
  12. Functional Residual capacity
    the volume of gas remaining in the lungs after a normal ( tidal) (unforced) exhalation
