Abstract:

This evaluation was made of the semi-closed circuit. Flatus II was prepared for comparison with the LES unit. The Flatus II was tested objectively by breathing machine depth runs with respiratory pressure instrumentation and subjectively by swimming runs. Breathing machine results are summarized as graphs at peak respiratory pressure against depth. Subjective test results are summarized narratively. The results are discussed.
