  1. the amount of air in the air passages after a maximum forced inhalation
    • Total lung capacity
    • TLC=TV+IRV+ERV+RV
  2. the amount of air one can forcibly inhale after a normal inhalation
    Inspiratory reserve volume (IRV)
  3. the amount of air in the air passages after they have been open
    Minimal volume (200 cc/minute; part of Residual volume)
  4. the amount of air one can forcibly exhale after a normal exhalation
    Expiratory reserve volume (ERV)
  5. the amount of air one breathes in or out per minute
    • Minute respiratory volume (6000 cc/minute)
    • TV x Breaths/min
  6. the amount of air in the air passages after a normal exhalation
    • Functional residual capacity (FRC)
    • FRC=ERV+RV
  7. the amount of air one breathes in or out per breath
    Tidal volume (TV)
  8. the amount of air one can inhale after a normal exhalation
    • Inspiratory capacity (IC)
    • IC=TV+IRV
  9. the amount of air one can exhale after a maximum forced inhalation
    • Vital capacity (VC)
    • VC=TV+IRV+ERV
  10. the amount of air in the air passages after a maximum forced exhalation
    Residual volume (RV)
  11. Normal Breathing Rate=__?__ breaths/minute
    12
