Abstract : It appears that currently available equipment (or available equipment with minor modification) can be adapted to meet the most basic requirements for respiratory atmosphere analysis. However, the optimum characteristics desired are probably not intrinsic to currently available instrumentation. The most limiting factor appears to be the incapability of a single analytical technique to provide acceptable monitoring of the atmospheric composition. It is almost certain that in any system for atmosphere analysis it will be necessary to utilize equipment employing more than one of the analytical methods in use today.
