After describing how the CSE SCSR works, this segment explains the donning procedure with step-by-step demonstrations in both emergency and classroom settings. It stresses the importance of following instructions, keeping calm, and understanding the normal rises in temperature and breathing resistance that occur with the CSE SCSR during use. (09:05)

Learn how to perform a Changeover with the CSE SCSR.
The time it takes to escape may exceed the duration of the SCSR you first donned in an emergency. If it does, you'll need to change over to a spare unit while the surrounding air is still unsafe to breathe. This segment explains when to change over, and demonstrates the steps for doing it smoothly and safely. (04:49)
This segment demonstrates CSE SCSR donning practice with the CSE SR-D. The SR-D also offers expectation training for the rise in breathing resistance that normally accompanies SCSR operation, as well as for the fit of the mouthpiece and the size and shape of the SCSR in use. Applies to the SRLD and ASR models. (05:00)
If an SCSR user loses the unit's starter oxygen through the mouthpiece before it can inflate the breathing bag, manually starting the unit can be a life-saving skill. This segment shows how to practice the manual start using the CSE SR-T, which also demonstrates the range of temperature and breathing resistance of an actual SCSR. Applies to all CSE SCSR models.

With step-by-step instructions, this segment shows how to conduct expectation training using the CSE SR-MP. Trainees will experience the fit of the mouthpiece and the breathing resistance and heat that build up toward the end of a CSE SCSR's operating duration. Applies to all CSE SCSR models. (03:31)
