Pulmonary volumes

Tidal volume is the inspiratory capacity plus inspiratory reserve volume

Functional residual capacity is the expiratory reserve volume plus residual volume

Vital capacity is the inspiratory reserve volume plus tidal volume plus expiratory reserve volume

Total lung capacity is vital capacity and residual volume

Minute respiratory volume is respiratory rate multiplied by tidal volume

Alveolar ventilation is the rate at which new air reaches the alveoli, alveolar sacs and ducts and respiratory bronchioles

Dead space is the remaining air in the respiratory tree which is not part of the alveolar ventilation and which is not used for gaseous exchange.
