Abstract:

Chamber oxygen measurements were made on 12 hypobaric chamber flights. These measurements were analyzed to determine whether not venting the chamber would result in an oxygen accumulation. It was observed that the oxygen percentage increased from the normal value of 20.9 to 27.1. This seriously compromised the effectiveness of the hypoxia demonstration conducted on these flights.
