How do you calculate Vt or Tidal Volume
if in lbs divide by 2.2 and multiply by 10
if in kg, just mulitply by 10
How do you calculate Vds or deadspace volume?
if in lbs, mutiply by 1
if in kg, multiply by 2
How do you calculate Va?
Vds - Vt = ?ml
how do you calculate VA?
(Vt-Vds)*RR = ?L/min
Va * RR(f) = ? L/min
How is VE calculated?
Vt *RR or f = ? L/min
dont forget to divide by 1000 or move 3 decimal places
Lung compliance or Cl is calculated how?
Vt / P then convert to L/cmH2O by moving 3 decimal places
How is Raw calculated?
P/F = ? cmH2O/L/sec
How is Vd/Vt calculated?
PaCO2 - PeCO2 / PaCO
