  1. ´╗┐The amount of air entering and leaving the lungs in a respiratory cycle
    Tidal volume
  2. What is the amount of air that can be inhaled in addition to resting tidal volume?
    Inspiratory reserve volume
  3. What is the amount of air that can be exhaled in addition to resting tidal volume?
    Expiratory reserve volume
  4. Volume of air remaining in the lungs after the most forceful expiration
    Residual volume
  5. The amount of new atmospheric air moved into the respiratory passages each minute is called? It equals tidal volume x breath rate.
    Minute ventilation
  6. Tidal volume minus physiological dead space: the resulting volume multiplied by the breath rate is the
    Alveolar ventilation rate
  7. Tidal volume plus the inspiratory reserve volume.
    Inspiratory capacity
  8. Expiratory reserve volume plus the residual volume equals?
    Functional residual capacity
  9. Inspiratory reserve volume plus tidal volume plus expiratory volume equals ______ . This capacity is the max volume that can be exhaled after taking the deepest breath possible.
    Vital capacity
  10. Vital capacity plus the residual volume equals
    Total lung capacity
  11. The air that remains in the passageways of the trachea, bronchi, and bronchioles.
    Anatomic dead space
  12. Nonfunctional alveoli in the lungs due to poor blood flow in the adjacent capillaries creates
    Alveolar dead space
  13. Anatomic dead space plus alveolar dead space equals.
    Physiologic dead space
  14. This is the more important physiological ventilation rate because it affects the concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the alveoli&thus in the blood.
    Alveolar ventilation rate
