Abstract:

HQ AFMCSG requested FOTE to quantify the medical capabilities of the C-17 passenger oxygen system to support aeromedical AE operations. Specifically, this testing effort was performed to 1 determine if the therapeutic outlets could provide sufficient flow rates and pressures to support ventilators, 2 determine if the high altitude low opening HALO outlets could provide sufficient flow rates and pressures to support medical flow meters, and 3 document the effects of an emergency mask deployment on the HALO therapeutic function.
