Have you ever seen a flight attendant put the O2 mask on during the safety brief?

Actually, they do not fully put it on, they just show what you should do. Also, keep in mind how dirty the demo masks are.

Almost every airliner I've ever been on had Drager OxyCrew units for the flight attendants which they must put on before going to the assistance of passengers. You'll see them mounted on the bulkhead near each exit.

They are in different places in each aircraft type.

For example on the 737 and 767 there are 2 portable oxygen units in the first fwd and 3 in the last aft SEP overhead lockers.

The flight deck has 4 eros masks.

Those Drager masks you are reffering too are actually smoke hoods!

And very uncomfortable they are too.

O2 masks should be put on during the safety demo, the actual masks for a decompression are usually above f/a jump seats and there are usually extra O2 masks at every bank of seats.

If they are just smoke hoods why are they called OxyCrew? The name implies oxygen for crew.

From the Draeger website......Classification Oxycrew is a portable Protective Breathing Equipment (PBE) for crewmembers according to FAA Action Notice A 8150.2 and SAE AS 8047.

Yes they do provide crew with oxygen, but are actually smoke hoods, and are designed to provide oxygen in a smoke filled cabin.it is literally like spaceman helmet with a shoulder cover attached, and the oxygen is triggered by a chemical reaction at the back of the helmet, which when you breathe in for the first time in the hood this activates the oxygen.

They are horrible to wear, we had to actually get on one out and put one on when i did my smoke and fire cabin crew training.

The portable oxygen units are stowed to be used in a decompression, or sometimes to aid pax when they are unwell and not in their seat.
