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?
 (VtVds)*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
