Study Notes

Lung Volumes and Capacities

  • The approximate volume of Tidal Volume (TV) in a healthy individual is around 500 mL.

Total Lung Capacity (TLC)

  • TLC represents the maximum amount of air in the lungs, around 6 L.

Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV)

  • ERV represents the additional air that can be forcibly exhaled after normal expiration, around 1 L.

Pulmonary Capacities

  • Inspiratory Capacity (IC) includes Tidal Volume (TV) and Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV).
  • Vital Capacity (VC) includes Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV), Tidal Volume (TV), and Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV).
  • Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) includes Residual Volume (RV) and Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV).

Lung Capacities

  • Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV) represents the additional air that can be breathed in forcefully after normal inspiration, around 3 L.
  • Expiratory Capacity (EC) includes Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV) and Tidal Volume (TV).
  • Vital Capacity (VC) represents the maximum volume of air that can be breathed out after a forced inspiration.

Respiratory Volumes

  • Residual Volume (RV) represents the air remaining in the lungs after forced expiration, around 1.2 L.
  • Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) represents the air remaining in the lungs after normal expiration, around 2.3 L.

Test your knowledge on respiratory volumes such as Tidal Volume, Inspiratory Reserve Volume, and Expiratory Reserve Volume. Learn about the different volumes of air inspired or expired during respiration.
