002 Hypoxia Simulation Training

002 Hypoxia Simulation Training


The purpose of this training will be to familiarize each Crewmember with their individual signs and symptoms of hypoxia through lecture and simulation training. The training objective is for each Crewmember to successful treat their symptoms of hypoxia.

Training Protocol:

Each training session will begin with a self paced review of hypoxia and how to mitigate the risk of hypoxia including: causes of hypoxia, effects of hypoxia, signs and symptoms, treatment of hypoxia, FAA regulations for oxygen usage and emergency procedures.

After the lecture a brief overview of the simulation training will be given, all medical clearances will be checked and pre-training screening will be competed.  Each volunteer will then be given a training time to return for their simulation training.  Training will be done in teams of two.  One aircrew member will watch and observe the signs of hypoxia in the other aircrew while they perform the simulation.

Each aircrew member will perform hypoxia simulation training associated with their normal flight tasks on the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device 2 (ROBD2).  Anyone who has not had previous hypoxia training will perform a familiarization run at 25,000 ft to learn their symptoms of hypoxia.  The second profile will be conducted using a standard altitude training profile of 3 minutes at 10,000 ft cabin altitude and not more than 4 minutes at 25,000 ft cabin altitude.  Each Crewmember will perform their normal flight duties while flying a desktop flight simulator and communicating with a simulated air traffic controller.  A standardized set of course and altitude changes as well as radio calls will be handled by each Crewmember during the simulation.  Each Crewmember will be instructed to treat themselves by performing their emergency procedures as they would in the aircraft when they feel the symptoms of hypoxia. The training will be terminated when the Crewmember successfully treats their hypoxia symptoms or when the instructor feels that the Crewmember could no longer fly the aircraft and perform their emergency procedures. Each cabin crew member will perform a simulation representative of their duties.  Their training will be terminated when they successfully recognize and treat their symptoms of hypoxia or are unable to perform the simulation.  A debrief will be held with each aircrew after the simulation training session with a printout, FAA High Altitude Ground Endorsement, log book entry and DVD of the training will be provided.
