Aviator's Breathing Oxygen Purity Standard

1997-09-01
HISTORICAL
AS8010C
This document defines the minimum degree of purity and maximum levels of certain deleterious impurities allowable for aviator's breathing oxygen at the point of manufacture or generation. It covers gaseous, liquid, and chemically generated oxygen, and oxygen supplied by in situ concentration and in situ electrolysis. Different limits are established for oxygen from different sources, in recognition of differences in the ways the oxygen is stored, dispensed, and utilized, taking into account the safety of the user. These limits are not intended to specifically reflect upon the relative capabilities or merits of various technologies. Procurement documents may specify more stringent limits, where required for specific applications. Medical oxygen is not covered by this standard. In the United States, medical oxygen is a prescription drug.

Carry-On Portable Oxygen Concentrators

2012-06-06
CURRENT
AS8059
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) applies to a personal, portable oxygen concentrator (POC) to be supplied and used by a passenger requiring supplemental oxygen therapy while traveling on board civil, commercial, or personal aircraft. It covers a POC during both self-powered battery operation and while powered from an aircraft seat’s electrical power through the use of an accessory adapter. The POC is not intended to be connected to the aircraft’s oxygen systems or to be used by any aircraft personnel in any method of treatment or first aid of the general flying public.

Crewmember Demand Oxygen Mask For Transport Category Aircraft

1996-07-01
HISTORICAL
AS8026A
This standard covers oxygen masks and breathing valves used with both panel mounted and mask mounted demand and pressure-demand oxygen regulators. Mask mounted oxygen regulators are covered under other standards, but when the mask mounted regulator incorporates an integral exhalation valve, the performance of this valve shall meet the requirements of this standard.

DYNAMIC TESTING SYSTEMS FOR OXYGEN BREATHING EQUIPMENT

1987-04-01
HISTORICAL
ARP1109A
This ARP describes test equipment and methods used for testing continuous flow, demand and pressure demand regulators and their associated masks as well as filtered protective breathing devices; such articles of oxygen breathing or protective breathing equipment may be tested as individual components or as a complete system.

Determination of Chlorine in Oxygen from Solid Chemical Oxygen Generators

1991-01-01
HISTORICAL
ARP1320A
This ARP covers a procedure to be used in the determination of 0.05 to 0.3 ppm of chlorine in oxygen from any type of generator used for emergency or other life-support systems. The methyl orange method described can be considered as a referee technique. Instrumental analysis is also given in Section 8.

Effects of Acute Altitude Exposure in Humans: Requirements for Physiological Protection

2007-07-26
CURRENT
AIR825/2
The intent of this SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is to describe the effects of the environmental changes on human physiology and the protection required to avoid negative consequences resulting from altitude exposure. A brief presentation of basic terms and considerations required to discuss the topic of human physiology at altitude are followed by an overview of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Issues specifically related to human exposure to altitude are then discussed.

FAR – Regulatory Requirements Covering the Use of Breathing Oxygen in Aircraft

2016-06-22
CURRENT
AIR1389B
This report presents, paraphrased in tabular format, an overview of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) for aircraft oxygen systems. It is intended as a ready reference for those considering the use of oxygen in aircraft and those wishing to familiarize themselves with the systems requirements for existing aircraft. This document is not intended to replace the oxygen related FAR but rather to index them in some order. For detailed information, the user is referred to the current issue of the relevant FAR paragraph referenced in this report.

Fuel Versus Oxygen: Evaluations and Considerations

2013-04-04
CURRENT
AIR5648A
Specific federal aviation regulations (Titled 14 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations, or 14 CFR) define oxygen system requirements for an in-flight decompression incident. This AIR addresses the operational oxygen system requirements for a decompression incident that may occur at any point during a long-range flight, with an emphasis for a decompression at the equal time point (ETP). This AIR identifies fuel and oxygen management contingencies, and presents possible solutions for the efficient, safe, and optimum fuel/oxygen flight continuation. Oxygen management is a concern to all aircraft, such as single engine types that fly above 10 000 feet and use supplemental oxygen. This document provides a method which can help guide users in developing an oxygen solution for their aircraft.
