What are the 5 accessory muscles of breathing?
The volume of air inspired OR expired in one normal breath.
Inspiratory Reserve Volume
The maximum amount of air that can be inspired after a normal tidal volume inspiration
Expiratory Reserve Volume
The maximum amount of air that can be expired after a normal expiration. 1000mL
the volume change that occurs between maximal inspiration and maximal expiration
The volume of air remaining in the airways and lungs after a maximal expiration
The volume of air inspired OR expired per minute. =TVxRR
Total Lung Capacity
Total amount of air the lungs can hold. The total amount of air in the airways and lungs after a maximal inspiration. IRV+TV+ERV+RC
Amount of air that can be inspired after a normal exhalation. =TV+IRV
Forced vital capacity
Amount of air forcefully expired after a maximal inspiration
Functional residual capacity
Amount of air in the lungs after a normal exhalation. ERV+RV
