Unformatted text preview: AP-2 Lab 08 – Lab Report Name: ____________________ Section: ___________________ Lab Report: Exercise 8: Respiratory Physiology
Purpose: Please explain the purpose of this lab. Include in your explanation the major concepts you learned and any safety concerns associated with the lab. Activity 1: Measuring Lung Capacity Observations: Questions: A. Why is it important to calculate averages for measurements in this exercise? How does your estimated vital capacity compare with the measured vital capacity? Why is it important to know a person’s vital capacity or tidal volume? How does smoking effect vital capacity? Log onto the Hands-On Labs website. Click on Exercise 8 and click on “Respiratory Volumes and Capacities”. Use the table on the website to answer the next three questions. Calculate the total lung capacity (TLC) of a person who has a vital capacity of 5,200 ml and a residual volume of 1205 ml. Is this person a male or a female? 1 B. C. D. E. F. Calculate the functional residual capacity (FRC) of a person with an expiratory reserve volume of 800 ml and a residual volume of 1095 ml. Is this person a male or female? What is the inspiratory capacity (IC) of a person with a tidal volume of 505 ml and an inspiratory reserve volume of 1950 ml? Is this person male or female? G. Activity 2: Effects of Exercise on Respiration Observations: Questions: A. What effect does exercise have on the amount of carbon dioxide released by the blood? Why do your respirations go up as you exercise? What did the ammonia drops represent in the body? Why do athletes prefer to train in high altitude locations? What effect does this training have on respiration? B. C. D. Conclusion: Do some research on what kinds of information a physician could gain from running a lung capacity test on someone. 2 ...
