Normally, an individual’s tidal volume is about

A. 1-2 mL/1b.

B. 3-4 mL/1b.

C. 5-6 mL/1b.

D. 7-8 mL/1b.

Summary Introduction

Introduction:

The tidal volume represents the air that a person inspires and expires in one quiet breath. The quiet breath is breathing at rest without applying any extra force. The tidal volume in a person is calculated by using the ideal body weight, and has significant value. The tidal volume is important for mechanical ventilation process which refers to the assisted ventilation system that provides fresh air. Tidal volume is denoted as TV or TV.

Explanation

Justification/ Explanation for the correct answer:

Option (b) is 3-4 ml/lb. The average tidal volume is about 500 milliliters. A normal adult inspires 12-18 breaths per minute, and its average can be taken as 15. The tidal volume is calculated in accordance with the ideal body weight (IBW). Hence, option (b) is the correct answer.

The explanation for the incorrect answers:

Option (a) is 1-2 ml/lb. The tidal volume of an individual is normally 3-4 ml/lb of the ideal body weight. If the tidal volume is 1-2 ml/lb, then the respiratory minute volume comes out to be very low, assuming an average ventilation rate of 15. The normal minute volume in the resting condition is about 5-8 liters in a minute...
