I ask this because with the aid of a friend and the commentary made on Darth Vader´s life support system, I have now formulated how Vader can breath unassisted. He has several tubes that enter his throat, which enable him to inhale small amounts of air through his mouth. His lungs can then extract them and enable him to survive for short periods in the event he looses his mask, his chest control pannel or belt controls develop a glitch. Of course, what he recieves is so little that if he breathed through these tubes for an extended period, he would die a slow death of oxygen deprevation. The question I seek an answer to is: how long could he breath through the aforementioned tubes until he reached the terminal stage?

Approximately 10 minutes. If he's not using the force to concentrate, he starts having trouble around a minute and a half, I'd imagine he'd begin to asphyxiate around 4min, and it's be a rapid decline from there.
They make a couple mentions of it in the Shadows of the Empire book :P

tubes down his throat!? ow I do know that he needs purified oxygen because his lungs were ruin by the sulfur and burns.
I recently purchase the Darth Vader reconstruction log. It indicates that Vader breaths through an air filter device, which then delivers purified air to the ventilator implanted into his chest with the aid of the air pump on top of his mask. When Starkiller knocked Vader´s mask off, the air pump was removed. How then, did the air reach the artificial breathing mechanisms and sustain Vader well enough to allow him to function normally?
I posted information that was not accurate and have edited the previous post to be more consistent with existing information. I would like us to try the discussion again. Please reread the previous reply and give me your feedback.

Wait.....could of sworn there was this exact thread about 2 years ago.
Roughly 10 moments. If he's not using the power to focus, he begins having problems around a instant and a 50 percent, I'd think about he would start to asphyxiate around 4min, and it's be a fast decrease from there.:bows:
