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