The letter regards the development of Models K and L oxygen meters, recommendations for which are ready for further testing by the National Defense Research Committee, and a note that some are unsuitable due to suspension issues.
Developed from a Linus Pauling design during WWII, the technology behind Beckman Instruments’ oxygen analyzers ended up doing such diverse jobs as monitoring astronauts’ respiration, maintaining packaged food safety, and preventing blindness in newborn babies.
