  10. 12. Working - contd <ul><li>At the same time fresh air will be admitted to the coffin through the tubes, whereby life may be sustained until help comes. </li></ul><ul><li>After a sufficient length of time has elapsed, so that it will be positively certain that death has taken place, the housing and the tube 6 can be disconnected from tube 2. </li></ul><ul><li>And hence the apparatus can be readily used again and again </li></ul>
  11. 13. Conclusion <ul><li>Though it is one of strange inventions it shows one human feeling the most which is </li></ul><ul><li>“ hope” </li></ul>
