Experiment ResultsPredict Question:Predict Question: Lung diseases are often classified as obstructive or restrictive. An obstructivedisease affects airflowand a restrictivedisease usually reduces volumes and capacities. Although they are not diagnostic, pulmonary functiontests such as forced expiratory volume(FEV1) can help a clinician determine the difference between obstructive andrestrictive diseases. Specifically, anFEV1 is the forced volume expired in 1 second.In obstructive diseases such as chronic bronchitis and asthma, airway radius is decreased. Thus,FEV1 will,Stop & Think Questions:Which muscles contract during quiet expiration?You correctly answered: d. None of these muscles contract during quiet expiration.6. Minute ventilationis the amount of air that flows into and then out of the lungs in a minute. Minute ventilation (ml/min) =TV (ml/breath) x BPM (breaths/min).Enter the minute ventilation in the field below and then click Submitto record your answer in the lab report.You answered: 7500 ml/min11. A useful way to express FEV1 is as a percentage of the forced vital capacity (FVC). Using the FEV1 and FVC valuesfrom the data grid, calculate the FEV1 (%) by dividing the FEV1 volume by the FVC volume (in this case, the VC is equal tothe FVC) and multiply by 100%. Enter the FEV1 (%) for an airway radius of 5.00 mm in the field below and then click Submitto record your answer in thelab report.
