This document describes how to calculate the work performed by a person's respiratory muscles with and without the external respiratory impediments that are imposed by RPD of all kinds, except diving equipment. This Document describes how much additional impediment people can tolerate and contains values that can be used to judge the acceptability of an RPD. NOTE These calculations are explained in some textbooks on respiratory physiology (in the absence of an RPD), but most omit them or are incomplete in their explanations.

This document gives: — a description of the composition of the Earth's atmosphere; — a description of the physiology of human respiration; — a survey of the current biomedical literature on the effects of carbon dioxide and oxygen on human physiology; — examples of environmental circumstances where the partial pressure of oxygen or carbon dioxide can vary from that found at sea level. This document identifies oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration limit values and the length of time within which they would not be expected to impose physiological distress. To adequately illustrate the effects on human physiology, this document addresses both high altitude exposures where low partial pressures are encountered and underwater diving, which involves conditions with high partial pressures. The use of respirators and various work rates during which RPD can be worn are also included.

ISO/TS 16975-2:2016 provides brief guidance to assist persons responsible for establishing and implementing a programme for respiratory protective devices (RPD) that meet the performance requirements. There are special applications where the selection of suitable RPD using this guide is not appropriate. These are: a) Fire Fighting ? structural and wildland firefighting, hazardous materials and rescue applications; b) CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear agents); c) Marine ? shipboard or off-shore firefighting or hazardous materials applications; d) Mining ? underground mining or firefighting and rescue applications; and e) Escape ? general, fire, CBRN, marine and mining. NOTE 1 For more detailed information relating to the special applications, refer to ISO/TS 16975‑1. This guidance does not apply to selecting RPD against bio aerosols. NOTE 2 Reference [3] addresses selection of RPD for bio aerosols that are capable of causing infection or adverse or allergic response but for which no occupational exposure limits have been established. This guidance does not apply to RPD programmes for RPD used exclusively under water, in aircraft, and medical life support respirators and resuscitators.
