8. Tidal volume (TV) refers to the usual and normal amount of air volume difference between inspired and expired gases without any extra effort. Thus, the tidal volume can be calculated as below:
IC = TV + IRV
Inserting the values given, we get:
4.5 = TV + 3.75
Thus, TV = 4.5 - 3.75 OR 0.75 L OR 750 mL
Given: IRV = 3.75 L IC = 4.5 L TLC =7.5 L ERV = 1.5 L 10 BPM VD = 150 mL
