The Lung Volumes (LV) manoeuvre provides information on numerous lung volumes and capacities, along with elastic properties of the respiratory system. Through this degassing technique, we can obtain Total Lung Capacity (TLC), Residual Volume (RV) and Functional Residual Capacity (FRC)


The document provides extensive information regarding:

  • an overview of the Lung Volumes manoeuvre
  • the process of obtaining TLC, RV, and FRC 
  • troubleshooting leaks between subject and flexiVent, non-degassed lungs, insufficient module size, and issues encountered after degassing
