  • Lung Volume Test

    First, I would do a lung volume test. This test measures the volume of air in the lungs at distinct periods of the breathing cycle. It is accomplished utilizing a machine called the plethysmography. You are seated during the exam and will be asked to breathe in and out of a mouthpiece and sometimes to gasp for air (Ranu et al., 2011). The exam is specifically beneficial in distinguishing between restrictive lung diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis and obstructive lung diseases such as asthma. Secondly, I would do a maximal voluntary ventilation test (MVV). This measures the greatest quantity of air that can be breathed in and breathed out in one minute. The exam is commonly carried out greater than 15 seconds, which will require you to breathe in and out as vigorously as possible (Ranu et al., 2011). This exam can be beneficial in evaluating the overall capacity of the respiratory system. It might be diminished in cases of asthma, upper airway…

When the oxygen passes the walls of the alveoli it goes into the blood vessels which carries the oxygen through out the body to use as needed.…
