Abstract
The Bureau of Mines has conducted considerable research to improve life support technology for underground mining applications. This proceedings volume presents several new developments that may help increase the chances of mine workers in surviving underground disasters. Several papers address the performance of present self-contained self-rescuers (SCSR's) and provide proposed guidelines for the design and testing of a second-generation SCSR. Improvements in the safety and effectiveness of mine rescue and recovery operations are described, including the design of a low-profile breathing apparatus and a rescue team helmet.
