A breathing apparatus, similar to a respiration device, was a piece of equipment that allowed an individual to breathe while in an unsuitable atmosphere.

Jadzia Dax knew of a hydrogen-breathing Lothra and an Oxygene who fell in love and yet could only be in the same room for forty minutes a day without their breathing apparatus, nonetheless staying together for fifty-seven years. She gave Melora Pazlar this example to convince her that a relationship with Julian Bashir wouldn't be impossible despite the differences between them. (DS9: "Melora")
