ECE3820 Principles and Practice of Biomedical Engineering Laboratory Lab Fall’11 1 of 2 Week9: Pulmonary Function (Adapted from Biopac lessons L12) Abstract (15pnts) Introduction (15pnts) Figure1 Respiratory volumes and capacities. Table1 Average volumes for young adult males and females. There are four non-overlapping primary compartments of total lung capacity: tidal volume, inspiratory reserve volume, expiratory reserve volume and residual volume. Define each of these and label figure1 appropriately. Include average volumes for male and females in table1 below. Define the vital capacity, inspiratory and expiratory capacity. What is the difference between volume and capacities? Approach (15 pnts) Briefly describe the equipment used. Describe your experimental protocol. Explain how airflow measurements are converted into volume measurements. Results (30pnts) Include the following figures, tables and calculations (remember to describe your results in the text of the paper).
