Using these notations, we present here some simple algebraic exercises that show some interrelationships between volumes and lung capacity, so think through and verify these correlations. this office.

Spirometry is just one of many measurement procedures that pulmonologists use every day. Many of these measurement procedures rely heavily on mathematical calculations. To simplify these calculations, as well as the presentation of lung function data, some acronyms and symbols have been standardized.

The more important of these are given in the table.

Using these notations, we present here some simple algebraic exercises that show some interrelationships between volumes and lung capacity; should think through and verify these correlations.

VC = IRC + Vt + ERV.

VC = IC + ERC.

TLC = VC + RV.

TLC = IC+ FRC.

FRC = ERV+ RV.
