(a) IRV and ERV.
(b)Inspiratory and expiratory capacity.
(c) Vital capacity and Total lung capacity.
1. It is the amount of air inhaled forcibly after normal inspiration.
1. It is the amount of air exhaled forcibly after normal expiration.
2. ERV = 1000 – 1100 ml.
1. It is the total volume of air which can be inhaled after normal expiration.
2. I.C. = TV + IRV
3. IC is 3000– 3500 ml.
1. It is the total volume of air expired after a normal inspiration.
2. EC = TV + ERV
3. EC= 1500- 1600 ml.
