  1. Volume of air inspired or expired per breath
    tidal volume

    600-500ml
  2. Volume of air from end of tidal inspiration to maximal inspiration

    (from normal inhalation to max inhalation)
    Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV)

    3000-1900 ml
  3. Volume of air from end of tidal expiration to maximal expiration

    (from normal exhalation to max exhalation)
    Expiratory Reserve volume (ERV)
  4. Volume of air in the lungs at the end of maximal inspiration
    total lung capacity (TLC)

    6000-4200ml
  5. volume of air in the lungs left over after maximal expiration
    Residual volume (residual lung volume)

    1200-1000ml
  6. volume of air from maximal inspiration to max expiration
    Vital capacity

    4800-3200ml

    (TV+IRV+ERV)
  7. volume of air from tidal expiration to maximal inhalation
    Inspiratory capacity (IC)

    3600-2400ml

    IC=TV+IRV
  8. volume of air in the lungs after a tidal expiration
