This preview shows page 7 - 9 out of 9 pages.

2. Calculate the ERV of an individual with the following respiratory volumes: TLC = 6000 ml, FVC = 4800 ml, RV = 1200ml, IRV = 2900 ml, TV = 500 ml. 3. Calculate the FVC of an individual with the following respiratory volumes: RV = 1000 ml, IRV = 3000 ml, TV = 500 ml,ERV = 1500 ml. 4. What is the largest volume for the normal patient? 5. What happened to the RV for the emphysema patient and the asthmatic patient?

03/11/13 page 8 Review Sheet Results 1. What lung values changed (from those of the normal patient) in the spirogram when the patient with emphysema wasselected? Why did these values change as they did? How well did the results compare with your prediction? 2. Which of these two parameters changed more for the patient with emphysema, the FVC or the FEV1? 3. What lung values changed (from those of the normal patient) in the spirogram when the patient experiencing an acuteasthma attack was selected? Why did these values change as they did? How well did the results compare with yourprediction?
