APPLICATIONS

Used by pulmonologists, doctors who specialize in treating pulmonary conditions, to measure a patients ventilation.

INPUTS

The following describes the inputs to this equation:

  • Tidal Ventilation Volume = the volume of air moved in and out of the lungs during breathing 
  • Dead Space Volume = the volume of inhaled air that does take part in the gas exchange

EXAMPLES

Va = Vt - Vt = 10 - 5 = 5 L
