What is your Vital Capacity (Online students should enter their calculations from the downloaded assignment)?
Among adults, the average pulmonary vital capacity decrease with age. Women tend to have smaller volumes than men of the same age and height. As height increases, vital capacity tends to increase. We can take these size and age-related variables into account and use a formula to estimate predicted vital capacity: Male: VC = 0.052H - 0.022A - 3.60 Female: VC = 0.041H - 0.018A - 2.69 VC = vital capacity in liters H = height in centimeters A = age in years Use this formula from your lab manual and calculate your estimated vital capacity. Students attending lab on campus can measure their own vital capacity. Vital capacity is considered normal if it is within 80% of the predicted VC. * (Those doing the lab strictly online should use the data from the downloaded assignment). What is your estimated vital capacity?
What was your FEV1? (Online students should enter the calculated FEV1 from the downloaded assignment.)
What was your FEV1 / VC ratio? (Online students should enter their answer from the downloadedassignment.)
correct this problem,but for now, he is trying to keep his respiratory muscles as strong as possible. Bobbie has a normal FEV1/ VC ratio. Explain how this is possible.
