A Test to Evaluate Lung Function
Inspiratory capacity (IC) measures how much air you can breathe into your lungs after you breathe out normally. Inspiratory capacity is usually measured during a pulmonary function test called spirometry.
On its own, your inspiratory capacity is not used to diagnose breathing problems but can be a useful way to monitor chronic lung diseases.
