Tidal volume is the amount of air or gas that a patient breathes in with each breathe.
Tidal volume plays a significant role during mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate ventilation without causing trauma to the lungs.
Formula to calculate tidal volume.
The inspiratory time is the time taken for inhalation.
Suppose the flow rate is 500ml per second, calculate the tidal volume if the inspiratory time 1 second.
Therefore, your tidal volume is 500ml.
