"Stephen Hales, FRS . . . was an English physiologist, chemist and inventor. Hales studied the role of air and water in the maintenance of both plant and animal life. He gave accurate accounts of the movements of water in plants, and demonstrated that plants absorb air. Hales discovered the dangers of breathing stale air, and invented a ventilator which improved survival rates when employed on ships, in hospitals and in prisons. Hales is also credited with important work in pneumatic chemistry, especially the development of the pneumatic trough, used for collecting gases generated in laboratory experiments." – Wikip.
