Mechanisms of Breathing (1936)
This very early Erpi film was produced in collaboration with the University of Chicago’s Biological Sciences Series and features animal experiments and a dramatized (or is it?) drowning and victim of carbon monoxide poisoning from a car left running in a garage – both incidents complete with (very outdated) administration of what would later become CPR!
Note: The following clip was taken directly from the original 16mm print and has been edited to a mere fraction of the film's original length.
