The paper describes altitude chamber experiments conducted with human subjects using a new continuous-flow disposable passenger mask applicable for emergency use to maximum altitudes of 41,000 feet. This mask design differs in configuration from the previous omni-directional maska designed to meet the requirements of Nationaal Aerospace Standard 1179 and FAA Technical Standard Order C-64 in that the inner face flap or seal has been eliminated and the cylindrical shape reduced to a modified cone. The primary goal of this study was to determine if design modification of the mask induced an increase or decrease in physiological efficiency. Author
