Title: A Self-Contained, Oxygen-Rebreathing Apparatus For Shallow Water Diving and Rescue: Design Characteristics of Improved LARU
Author: Lambertsen, CJ
Abstract: The major improvements made over the original World War II Lambertsen (SCUBA) (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus) include: improved comfort of face mask, increased vision, decreased mask dead space, increased operating duration, automatic control of neutral buoyance, use of more suitable materials for fungus and fire resistance, decreased resistance to breathing, increased efficency of carbon dioxide absorption, improved emergency surface floatation characteristics, decreased weight and ability of equipment to be readily converted for use as an air-hose supplied apparatus or as an open-circuit air breathing apparatus.
