Resumen This project was carried in response to a need for an improved training methodology for escape respiratory protective devices, namely to provide a realistic experience of the hot air breathing effects of a device operating in a high carbon monoxide content mine atmosphere. A second objective was to collect data on the tolerability and endurance limits associated with the extended wearing of an escape respiratory protective device producing a significant heat burden. The research work was addressed in two phases. The first phase involved thermo-chemical modelling of filter self-rescuers and the development of a hot air simulation device, suitable for both research and training purposes, while the second phase consisted of a range of physiological trials which identified significant thermal physiological benefits from adopting a staged evacuation process in conjunction with safe havens.
