During the respiration unit of my undergraduate anatomy class, one of my students asked about differences in lung volume and the effects of “being a runner” versus someone who does not exercise as regularly.

Exercise science is currently being heavily researched, and an understanding of recent findings can greatly impact a physician’s ability to provide individualized patient care.
