    Abstract

    Instrumentation is described for making the following measurements on a pressure-suited subject: partial pressures of inspired gases (oxygen, carbon dioxide), electrocardiogram, respiration rate and depth, blood pressure, body core temperature, metabolic rate, and skin temperature. Acceptable limits for some of these are given.
