Hypoxia Demonstration Room
Primarily designed to familiarise pilots and cabin crew with the hazards and symptoms associated with hypoxia in a safe classroom based environment.
Loss of cabin pressure during flight leads to hypoxia – a reduction of the oxygen supply to the brain with the consequential loss of reality and deterioration of mental ability.
Using a normobaric reduced oxygen breathing solution pilots and cabin crews are able to experience hypoxia in a safe environment. This allows those at risk to better understand its effects and promote early recognition of a persons personal symptoms.
