Abstract:

The U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research Burn Flight Team at Fort Sam Houston, Texas has the unique missions of rapid deployment to the scene of burn accidents and transport of burn victims to the nearest burn facility. The Burn Flight Team uses the Military Transporter Respirator, Model TXP, to aid in the rapid transport of burn accident victims requiring ventilatory assistance. The team submitted the respirator for testing and evaluation for use on aeromedical evacuation aircraft. The Model TXP respirator passed all laboratory and inflight testing, and was found acceptable for use on aeromedical evacuation missions.
