Subject Profile Name: Mandee Height: 5’3 Age: 27 Gender: Female Weight: 115 I. Data and Calculations A. Vital Capacity i.) Predicted : Use the equation below to calculate your Predicted Vital Capacity : liters Equations for Predicted Vital Capacity Where V.C. Vital Capacity in liters H Height in centimeters A Age in years Male5 V.C. = 0.052H - 0.022A – 3.60 Female V.C. = 0.041H - 0.018A – 2.69 ii) Observed : Use the P-P result to note Observed Vital Capacity : iii) Observed vs. Predicted What is Subject’s observed Vital Capacity to predicted Vital Capacity as a percentage? Observed/Predicted VC = 0.6610 x100= 66.10% Note : Vital capacities are dependent on other factors besides age and height. Therefore, 80% of predicted values are still considered “normal.” B. Volume & Capacity Measurements Complete Table 12.2 with the requested measurement results and calculate results per the formulas provided. Table 12.2 Measurements
