Research for the improvement of the physiological conditions of breathing apparatus.
Translations of 3 articles, "Recherches visant à améliorer les conditions physiologiques des appareils respiratoires". Revue de l'Institut d'Hygiène des Mines, Hasselt, Belgium, 1971, Vol.26, No.1, p.3-11, 12-16, and 17-23. Up to 13 self-contained breathing appliances were tested (liquid oxygen apparatus with soda lime regeneration, compressed oxygen apparatus with caustic soda regeneration, and compressed oxygen apparatus with soda lime regeneration). No.6362 (Petit) demonstrates the possibility of improving CO2 absorption and reducing the thermal load in hot environments by means of CO2-cooled protective clothing. Diagrams for estimating the overall physiological effects of a "good" and a "bad" respirator are reproduced. No. 6363 (Schewe) presents a method of simulating the use of self-contained breathing apparatus, using an artificial lung. Results obtained with ventilation rates of 10 and 50l/min are compared with those obtained in a human subject. No.6364 (Hausman) reports results of tests in 300 rescue workers with a wet-bulb temperature of up to 34°C. A definite improvement of the compressed oxygen appliances was obtained by cooling with solid CO2.

First aid in factories.
Sets out first-aid arrangements as required in the United Kingdom under the Factories Act 1961.

One person should be given the duty of ensuring that the arrangements work smoothly and satisfactorily throughout the factory and that first-aid boxes are kept properly stocked. Individual sections are devoted to: organisation of first-aid services; persons in charge of first aid; first-aid boxes; provision, manning, situation, construction and equipment of ambulance rooms; record keeping, etc.
