    Abstract

    The application of a planar fluid amplifier as a intermittent oxygen delivery device is presented. The proportional fluid amplifier was made bi-stable by positive feedback: by connecting its outputs to its inputs through a fluid resistor network. The device proved extremely reliable and easy to use. It reduced the oxygen consumption significantly.
