Abstract : The concept of 'time of useful consciousness' falls to take into account the progressive decay that occurs in performance under hypoxic conditions. This study, using a means of quantitatively assessing such a decrement, presents data obtained in a series of chamber runs at 27,500 and 35,000 feet. The performance-decrement functions appear to follow the arterial-oxygen-saturation curves. (Author)
