Step 1

1 of 2

Vital capacity is the total of tidal volume, inspiratory reserve volume and expiratory reseve volume: VC = 500 + 3200 + 1100 = 4800ml Total lung capacity is the total of tidal volume, inspiratory reserve volume, expiratory reserve volume and residual volume: TLC = 500 + 3200 + 1100 + 1150 = 5950ml.
