Abstract
Using a serial short term memory task, subjects were required to respond to symbols presented one-back, two-back, and three-back from a randomly presented list of four different symbols while breathing either 100 percent oxygen or atmospheric air with an oxygen mask in a heat stressful environment. The purpose of the experiment was to determine if breathing 100 percent oxygen had any effect on the short term memory of a subject under heat stress. Analysis of the data collected from 10 subjects under heat stress indicated breathing pure oxygen had no effect in the 15 minute period on short term memory.
