Glossary of Technical and Physiological Terms Related to Aerospace Oxygen Systems
This document presents a glossary of many of the terms that can be found in literature covering issues related to aviation oxygen systems and associated topics. Such a listing can never be all inclusive but the majority of important terms are anticipated to be included for reference.
This document consolidates reference definitions to many terms related to aviation oxygen systems. It was prepared as a ready reference to cover the multi-disciplinary aspects required to responsibly address work in the area of aviation oxygen systems. The goal is to provide a common reference and definitions that engineers, physiologists, or others could use to understand concepts that are not specific to their area of expertise.
