What is Lung Volume?
Lung volumes are also known as respiratory volumes. It refers to the volume of gas in the lungs at a given time during the respiratory cycle. Lung capacities are derived from a summation of different lung volumes. Lung volumes measurement is an integral part of pulmonary function test. These volumes tend to vary, depending on the depth of respiration, ethnicity, gender, age, body composition and in certain respiratory diseases.
How to Calculate Total Lung Capacity?
Total Lung Capacity calculator uses Total Lung Capacity = Inspiratory Reserve Volume+Tidal Volume+Expiratory Reserve Volume+Residual Volume of Lung to calculate the Total Lung Capacity, The Total Lung Capacity formula is defined as the maximum volume of air the lungs can accommodate or sum of all volume compartments or volume of air in lungs after maximum inspiration. Total Lung Capacity is denoted by TLC symbol.
How to calculate Total Lung Capacity using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Total Lung Capacity, enter Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV), Tidal Volume (TV), Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV) & Residual Volume of Lung (RV) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Total Lung Capacity calculation can be explained with given input values -> 42 = 1E-05+1E-05+1.2E-05+1E-05.
