Abstract : Body compositions and energy and nitrogen balances were measured during a study to define nutrient requirements in saturation diving. Divers were studied at the surface and during saturation dives at pressures of 0.56 and 3.17 MPa. A controlled diet provided 15.06 MJ and about 100 gm of protein daily with 30% of energy from fat. In balance studies, a duplicate of each meal and all urine and feces were collected. The samples were composited, homogenized, lyophilized, and analyzed for energy and nitrogen content. Body weights, underwater weights and deuterium spaces were measured periodically.... Hyperbarics, Diving, Energy, Metabolism, Nutrition
