Tidal volume- This is the amount you breath in and breath out in one breath. Respiratory volume- The amount of air that moves through the lungs every minuet. Minuet Volume- Volume of air you breath in, in 1 minuet. Vital Capacity- Maximum volume of air you breath out, after breathing in. You get vital capacity by adding inspiratory reserve volume, plus the expiratory reserve volume. Residual Volume- The amount of air left in your lungs after you have exhaled, around 1 litre will always remain or eles your lungs will deflate, so you would have no breath left. Inspiratory reserve volume- Amount of space avalable, for air to be inhaled. For example when you breath in and hold your breath trying to breath in more this is inhaling extra air that is called Inspiratory volume. Expiratory reserve volume- The amount of air that could be exhaled after you breath out. When you breath in then hold your breath trying to breath in more the air that gets away is the expiratory volume. Total lung volume- Vital capacity plus residual volume, this measures the maximum amount of air that can be presented in the lungs at any moment.
Neural and Chemical
Neural- This is where breathing is voluntary so your making yourself breath, the mechanoreceptors send messages to the brain when they sense a different movement of joints they asses movement and metabolic status. Chemical- This is involuntary breathing, chemoreceptors send messages to the brain to tell you that you need to need to take more oxygen in because you havnt got enough in your body also telling you if your carbon di
