A volume-cycled respirator, powered and controlled by a bistable fluid amplifier, was designed and developed to satisfy a set of predetermined requirements. A working prototype was tested in the laboratory to evaluate its performance on an engineering basis. The results indicate that this device generally satisfies the requirements imposed on it. Medical evaluation of the unit will provide the final decision as to its usefulness.
