A patient's airway pressure is being measured while he is breathing into a spirometer. Which of the following lung volumes would be associated with an airway pressure of +30 cm H2O?

a)FRC

b)TLC

c)RV

d)Tidal volume

e)Minimal volume





  #2

b)TLC

Yes...its b

nod

Any volume ABOVE FRC will create a POSITIVE airway pressure.

Any volume BELOW FRC will create a NEGATIVE airway pressure.

To measure airway pressure thru a spirometer, you can inhale to TLC & relax, you will feel the sensation of wanting to blow air out-- this creates a POSITIVE pressure in your airway.
