Enter the tidal volume and the respiration rate into the Oxygen Flow Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Oxygen Flow Rate.

## Oxygen Flow Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Oxygen Flow Rate.

**OFR = TV * RR**

- Where OFR is the Oxygen Flow Rate
- TV is the tidal volume
- RR is the respiration rate

## How to Calculate Oxygen Flow Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Oxygen Flow Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the tidal volume.
- The tidal volume is given as: 10.

- Next, determine the respiration rate.
- The respiration rate is provided as: 50.

- Finally, calculate the Oxygen Flow Rate using the equation above:

OFR = TV * RR

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

OFR = 10 * 50 = 500

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

tidal volume = 5

respiration rate = 60

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

OFR = TV * RR** = ?**
