In 1947, he adapted a military oxygen breathing regulator to produce a manually controlled positive pressure breathing device in order to help a friend's father who was suffering from emphysema.
Anti-G-Protection was either AEA (Aircrew Equipment Assembly), a pneumatic system which consists of a Full Coverage Anti-G-Trouser and Positive Pressure Breathing for G-Protection (PBG) (n=89) or a hydraulic self regulated suit (LIBELLE) without PBG (n=46).
Pressure-demand regulators like the A-14 should include selectable pressure settings, starting with "Safety." Air Force physiology manuals state clearly pressure breathing is not absolutely required until 40,000 feet if 100-percent oxygen is used.
