Can any doc explain why can't we exhale residual volume?

Can any doc explain why can't we exhale residual volume?

It's similar to a wet, soapy glass or cup in the sink. It sometimes sticks to the sink and you need a little more force to break the surface tension of the water. ...Read more

If untreated, the risk of rheumatic fever is the same as that of strep without the rash. ...Read more
