Abstract:

A device is described which functions both as a whole-body plethysmograph and as an environmental chamber, in which human subjects can be confined for prolonged periods. This device has been used to make pulmonary function measures while subjects have been exposed over 12 hour periods to air and 100 per cent oxygen, both at sea level and at altitude.
