Training Studies with Compressed Air Breathing Apparatus – Methodology, Exercises

Open access

Abstract

The current article describes topics ranging from the respiratory physiology and the structure of compressed air breathing apparatus to the performance of practical training exercises in an unbreathable environment (hereinafter referred to as UE).

The State Fire and Rescue Service (hereinafter referred to as SFRS) also carries out regular training studies in the UE, but these studies lack the methodology.

The research results could be used as a basis for the implementation of theoretical and practical training methods/exercises when training the SFRS officers.
