Abstract
A medical experiment in rescue breathing designed to study the influence of relaxant drugs on a selection of expired resuscitation techniques. The film illustrates selection of method of expired air resuscitation on volunteer patients using relaxant drugs such as barbiturates, belladonna and opiates (by vein) and nitrous oxide (by mask). With trials limited to two minutes, the intravenous drugs were given to stop breathing by purposely elevating the volunteer's carbon dioxide threshold. Resuscitation methods were then tried with and without the paralysis of curare or succinylcholine. Exact date of production and full credits are unknown.
