I'd like to know how much time I have on my gas mask on the surface.

My character's breathing frequency changes sometimes. Is that an indicator that I should change my gas mask?

Also, should I change my gas mask for any other reason than if it becomes damaged, like, glass broken from an attack?

There is clear indication of that on Artyom's watch.

On PC, you have to press T to look at it. On Xbox 360 - Left Bumper.

Also, should I change my gas mask for any other reason than if it becomes damaged, like, glass broken from an attack?

AFAIK, new mask always comes with the filter at 100%, so you could change just for that.

nice. Would you also like to answer the second part of my question? –  Bora Apr 27 '11 at 19:11

In the inventory, beneath the gas mask is a number. That's the number of minutes left for your filter. It's game minutes though, not real-time minutes.

Also, when your filter is getting low your mask should start to fog up, which is an indication that you will need to change it soon.
