Abstract : The invention described is a heat exchanger for use in intermittent flow situations in breathing apparatus that includes a plurality of thermally conductive rod members extending through a septum member that divides a duct into a plurality of counter flow passages. The exchanger is uniquely adapted to efficient heat exchange in intermittent gas flow situations by the provision of a septum member that is relatively low in thermal energy storage capacity and relatively low in thermal conductivity.
