This record consists of a report titled "A Manual Resuscitator." A manually operated valve had been placed in the mask tubing of an A-13 pressure breathing mask to be used for the simple emergency administration of oxygen under intermittent pressure in high altitude aircraft. This study was performed due to members of bomber crews becoming unconscious during routine high altitude flights due to anoxia. Use of the resuscitator is described. Diagrams and photgraphs included.
