A breathing apparatus is a kind of personal protective equipment (PPE) usually used in firefighting activities. This is a device worn by a firefighter or a rescue worker in order to get sufficient breathable air in a dangerous environment where life and health is at risk. It is a type of self contained air purifying respirator that is also used in industrial applications wherein it doesn’t require any hose as its remote air supply. Other types of air purifying respirators are designed for use underwater in which these are called SCUBA or self contained underwater breathing apparatus.

A typical self contained breathing equipment composed of parts including the high pressure tank, pressure regulator, and an inhalation connection such as respirator mask or mouth piece. These components are connected together and are mounted into a carrying frame. This breathing air equipment is classified into open circuit SCBA and close circuit SCBA. An open circuit SCBA is a compressed air breathing apparatus that is applied in fire service. It uses compressed air that is vented to the outside atmosphere. This firefighter gear has two regulators used to reduce the air pressure on the first stage allowing it to be carried to the mask and reducing it more in the second stage until it comes to the level just above the standard atmospheric pressure. A closed circuit also known as a re-breather apparatus uses liquid oxygen in which air is being reuse since the exhaled air stays within the system. It is used in applications where longer duration supply of breathing gas is required such as mine rescue and other places with narrow passages. It has less weight and its air supply can lasts up to 4 hours.
