  1. ´╗┐Tidal volume
    volume moved in or out of the lungs during a respiratory cycle
  2. Inspiratory reserve volume
    Volume that can be inhaled during forced breathing in addition to resting tidal volume
  3. Expiratory reserve volume
    Volume that can be exhaled during forced breathing in addition to resting tidal volume
  4. Residual Volume
    Volume that remains in the lungs at all time
  5. Inspiratory Capacity
    Maximum Volume of air that can be inhaled following exhalation of resting tidal volume
  6. Functional residual capacity
    Volume of air that remains in the lungs following exhalation of resting tidal volume
  7. Vital Capacity
    Maximum Volume of air that can be exhaled after taking the deepest breath possible
  8. Total Lung Capacity
    Total Volume of air that the lungs can hold.
  9. Minute Ventilation
    The volume of new atmospheric air moved into the respiratory passages each minute
  10. Alveolar Ventilation Rate
    Resulting volume multiplied by the breathing rate
  11. Anatomic dead space
    Air that Fails to reach the Alveoli because gases are not exchanged through the walls of these passages
  12. Alveolar Dead Space
    Poor blood flow in the adjacent capillaries where alveoli and some regions of the lungs are non functional due to poor blood flow
  13. Physiologic Dead Space
    The anatomic and alveoli dead space volumes combined
