No moving parts, but I understand that here was an air space between the two parts of the helmet.

The Tobacco Enema Kit, 1774
I did a blog post in 2013 about this enema device use specifically for the resuscitation of drowning victims. The wasmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration. The interesting phrase 'blowing smoke up your arse' is reputed to have originated at this rime.
