LAB #8 : Pulmonary Function. PROCEDURES: 1) Carry out the procedures for pulmonary function testing described on pages 17-8 to 17-11. 2) Ensure that when you leave the lab you have either the original spirogram or a photocopy of it. 3) From your spirogram calculate values for each of the following parameters: Minute Ventilation, Tidal Volume, Breathing Frequency, Expiratory Reserve Volume, Inspiratory Capacity, Vital Capacity, Forced Vital Capacity, Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 sec., FEV 1.0/FVC ratio, Maximum Breathing Capacity. 4) Calculate predicted values for each of VC & FVC (same prediction equation), FEV 1.0 & MBC (equations on pages 17-6 & 17-7), then calculate your actual values as a percentage of predicted values.
