This equation computes the alveolar ventilation volume which is the volume of gas per unit time that reaches the alveoli.

## 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
