1) Li is a tiny woman with a tidal volume of 400mL and a respiratory rate of 12 breaths per minute at rest. What is her total pulmonary ventilation?
2) Just before a physiology exam her ventilation increases to 18 breaths per minute from nervousness. Now what is her total pulmonary ventilation? Assuming her anatomic dead space is 120 mL, what is her alveolar ventilation in each case?
