When on an aircraft or high-rise building, and fire or some other such catastrophe becomes a present danger, people are going to panic. This is only natural.
Do not be fooled into believing that it is the flame that you have to fear, it is in-fact the smoke that presents the most immediate and imminent danger, but rather the tragic effects of smoke inhalation. If we look at typical residential fires, whilst fire is the principal culprit, odds are it is initially the excessive smoke and subsequent inhalation that is the most likely factor for incapacitating a number of victims. Depending on the density and heat of the smoke, it may take 2 to 10 minutes to lose consciousness or become a victim. Fire burns oxygen, so as a fire continues to be active, more oxygen gets removed from the room.
In these cases products like The personal Lifesaver Smoke hood can certainly prevent many fatalities by giving those trapped a few vital few minutes to escape or be rescued by the fire services.
