- Ex. 5�3�� woman
- IBW in Kg = 54.5 or 55
- 55 X 10 = 550
- 55 X 15 = 825
- 30% of predicted Inspiratory Capacity
- *Multiplying the IBW in Kg by 50 will give the predicted Inspiratory Capacity, you are looking for 30% of that volume.
55 X 50 X .30 = 825
To obtain the Target Volume or Goal: (for hyperinflation)
75% of the predicted Inspiratory Capacity
- Ex. 5�3�� woman
- IBW in Kg = 54.5 or 55
*Multiplying the IBW in Kg by 50 will give the predicted Inspiratory Capacity, you are looking for 75% of that volume.
55 X 50 X .75 = 2063
