The Total Lung Capacity (TLC) is the total volume of air accommodated in the lungs at the end of forced inspiration.

This includes:

1. RV; IC (Inspiratory Capacity); EC (Expiratory Capacity); and ERV
2. RV; ERV; IC and EC
3. RV; ERV; VC (Vital Capacity) and FRC (Functional Residual Capacity)
4. RV (Residual Volume); ERV (Expiratory Reserve Volume); TV (Tidal Volume); and IRV (Inspiratory Reserve Volume)

Lungs are made up of air-filled sacs, the alveoli. They do not collapse even after forceful expiration, because of:

1. Inspiratory Reserve Volume

2. Tidal Volume

3. Expiratory Reserve Volume

4. Residual Volume
