Lung volumes

What is Lung volumes?

Lung volumes refer to volume of air associated with different phases of the respiratory cycle. Lung volumes are directly measured. The average total lung capacity of an adult human male is about 6 litres of air but only a small amount of this capacity is used during normal breathing. tidal volume is the volume of air that is inhaled or exhaled in only a single such breath.
