If you add dead space and alveolar volume together, you get: tidal volume
The air contained within the pharynx, larynx, and conducting pathways is best defined as: anatomic dead space
If I'm talking about the unperfused air in alveoli sacs, I'm talking about: alveolar dead space
Normally anatomic dead space equals: physiological dead space
