A Respirovest is a type of high collared straight jacket wound with multiple wire coils. When the respirovest coils are properly energized they create a magnetic motor-field tuned to the magnetic moment of oxygen. The molecules are impelled into the nostrils and/or mouth and pushed down into the lungs. Carbon dioxide molecules (inversely magnetic) are pushed the other way.

The vest maintains breathing functions even for a badly injured person. The technology has been explored by fireman and rescue workers as a replacement or supplement for gas masks.
