In this lab, you’ll explore respiratory physiology.  First you’ll learn about spirometry and the clinically useful lung volumes and capacities.  Then you’ll do an activity that demonstrates the role of carbon dioxide levels on ventilation.

OBJECTIVES.

  1. To define and understand the following: tidal volume, vital capacity (VC), and %FEV1.
  2. Determine analyze vital capacity, % predicted VC, FEV1 and %FEV1 using a sample spirogram.
  3. Describe factors that affect VC and %FEV1
  4. Investigate the impact of carbon dioxide levels on ventilation
