The Importance of Air Change and How to Find It

Confined spaces by their very meaning solicit thoughts of small, uncomfortable, and untenable space. Ventilation is a must no matter the situation. According to Koester (2018) “out of 670 confined space deaths” 373 were atmospheric in nature and 0% were ventilated (para 3). Whether you’re ventilating to clear a hazardous atmospheric condition, make the space more tenable for the rescuer, or introduce fresh air for the patient, ventilation should be established at every incident if practical. Previously, three types of ventilation were discussed that give rescuers options to implement depending on the objectives of the incident: The training of the

Invisible Hazards in Confined Spaces

To maintain a healthy environment, it is important to recognize how these components can potentially be harmful.  Sufficient oxygen is extremely important to keep any atmosphere healthy — it’s one of the first elements on the periodic table we learn as kids in our grade school science classes. When other natural gasses enter a confined space when there has been a depletion of oxygen, then that is when the real trouble happens.  Hazardous atmospheres in confined spaces transpire when there is a deficiency of
