Abstract : Probabilistic models of decompression sickness (DCS) require high quality data of diving profiles and DCS occurrence to get reliable predictions of the probability of DCS, P(DCS). Over 400 experimental dives performed since 1977 in the U.S., U.K., and Canada were collected, verified, and formatted for use in probabilistic models. In most cases the dive profile precision is within 1 fsw in depth, 30 sec in time, and 0.1 ATA in PO2. DCS outcome and other medical records are of the high quality expected for test dives done in military laboratories. This report describes the data sources, steps used in the review and formatting process, and summaries of the data collection.... Decompression sickness, Hyperbaric, Diving, Data base.
