I'll take a stab at it gleaned from other forums:

VT = Tidal Volume
RR = Average respiratory rate during the selected period
MV = Average minute ventilation during the selected period
TgMV = Target minute ventilation .. Minute ventilation the device is attempting to achieve

Thankyou. That all makes sence

Also, you will find that MV = VT x RR
example. VT = 500 ml (0.5 Liters) and RR = 15 per minute
MV = 0.5 x 15 = 7.5 Liters per minute
