I work in a hospital as a respiratory therapist. Part of my job is mechanically ventilating people. A good guideline is 5-12 ml/kg for adults and 5-10ml/kg for infants and children. This is based on their ideal body weight (IBW). So an average adult is about female is about 70kg. Lets use 8ml/kg that would mean her lung capacity or tidal volume is approx. 560ml (70kg x 8ml/kg). So a child that is 60lbs would be around 27kg. If we use 8ml/kg to figure out their tidal volume it would be 216ml. Total lung capacity would likely be slightly more since we have a residual volume of air that we breath out only when we use force to exhale.
