Dad would be proud of us and embarrassed for the rest of the guys.
OK, you hinted at the thorax which is heart and lungs. Is this some sort of primitive medical ventilator? My only other guess would be a primitive heart by-pass pump.
It is not a ventilator, but you are very close. A little sleuthing on the last pic I posted would probably nail it.
This thing is a head scratcher. OK, so it has nothing to do w/ the heart? What is cylinder made of? It appears to be acrylic. I am trying to figure out what has turned it red.
C'mon Red55, give us a little help dammit!
This is what I was thinking it was a primitive version of:
Lung capacity measure. You blow into it and see how much liquid u offset
It was not used to measure lung capacity. It was used as a treatment for a specific lung ailment.
Early version of this?
Treatment of chronic lung disease
Think of extracting gasses rather than inserting them.
Ok, after re-reading the page where I found this, scratch what I said earlier.
Bad clue on my part.
Separate names with a comma.
