Residual volume

What is the function of residual volume?

The function of residual volume is to keep enough pressure in the lungs to keep them from collapsing.

residual (reserve) volume

Amy total lung capacity is 4000 mls Her tidal volume is 500 mls her expiratory reserve volume is 1000 mls and her residual volume is 500 mls What is the maximum volume of air that she has?

Well, first there is no such thing as mls. It is mL.

Why is residual volume important?

Residual Volume (rv) is important because it prevents the lungs from collapsing. It also prevents the inside surfaces of the lungs touching, thus creating friction. It also prevents the inner surfaces of the lungs sticking together. Another reason why we have a residual volume is that gaseous exchange is continuously occurring so after we have expelled as much air as possible (expiratory reserve volume) gaseous exchange is still occurring. Residual volume can be shown in this equation: residual volume = inspiratory reserve volume - tidal volume - expiratory reserve volume for an average person residual volume will be around 1 to 1.5 litres.
