Abstract
The degree of protection afforded by three jerkin G-suit systems (British, Canadian and Swedish) using different pressures against the adverse physiological effects produced by high levels (50 mm Hg and 70 mm Hg) of positive pressure breathing (PPB) was investigated at ground level in 10 male subjects. The British and Canadian systems were evaluated with G-suit pressure equal to breathing pressure and 3.2 times breathing pressure, whereas the Swedish system was studied only with 3.2 times breathing pressure in the G-suit. The experimental design was 10 X 10 Latin square.
