Abstract
With the acquisition of the new Long Range Patrol Aircraft (LRPA) the CP-140 Aurora, the Canadian Forces will also see the introduction of a new emergency supplemental oxygen system. Experimental results and observations indicated that the subjects had very little difficulty in placing the system into use after the decompression. Recorded oxygen saturation levels show that this system provided more than the required degree of hypoxia protection at the experimental altitudes.
