Experiment Results Predict Questions A normal resting tidal volume is expected to be around1 Which respiratory process is impaired the most by emphysema?2 During moderate aerobic exercise, which respiratory variable increases the most?4 Inhaler medications for an asthma patient are designed to5 Predict Question 1: With emphysema, there is a significant loss of elastic recoil in the lungtissue and a noticeable, exhausting muscular effort is required for each expiration.Inspiration actually becomes easier because the lung is now overly compliant.Using the spirogram, calculate the lung value most affected by the emphysema condition.1 1Predict Question 2: During an acute asthma attack, airway resistance is significantlyincreased by (1) increased thick mucous secretions and (2) airway smooth muscle spasms. 2
